Human Rights Education

Through this programme, we identify and analyse the social, political, civil and cultural implications of the human right law, humanitarian law and participatory democracy at the individual level. Further, we improve young and adult learners' perceptions of the today's diverse, multicultural society in which gender, sexual, and racial discrimination, oppression, racism and hate speech undermine efforts to equal rights by strengthening their knowledge and skills within these fields.

 

Objective 

Through empowerment and advocacy, we aim at facilitating youth and youth workers to build a universal culture of human rights; involves not only learning about human rights, how they can be violated and the mechanisms that protect them, but also the acquisition and reinforcement of skills needed to practically apply human rights, and the development of values, attitudes, and behaviours that uphold human rights by taking actions to defend and promote them.

 

Overall goal 

Our training courses aim at empowering youth and youth workers on how to identify, analyse and address human right violations. Our resources enable them to comprehend the root causes, underlying assumptions, prejudices, and biased behaviours in the genesis or perpetuation of oppression, discrimination, racism, and hate speech from a participatory democracy and humanitarian perspective, with actions that focus on responding and preventing human rights violations.

 

Our approach 

To facilitate human rights advocacy, our training focus on developing the basic knowledge necessary to raise awareness about human right violations and their consequence. Training learning activities are designed to strengthen the learner capacity in disseminating information and designing training courses on how to overcome oppression, dicrimination, racism and hate speech from intersectional criticism, that human rights cannot be upheld without participatory democracy.

 

Achieving impact 

Participants are integrating a human rights perspective from analysis, planning, designing, to delivering any of their initiatives. Our approach encompasses tools intended to help human rights activists complete their projects by integrating a human rights-sensitive aspect throughout the lifecycle of their initiatives. Since each problem exists in a very specific context, before addressing the problems, needs or gaps in their societies, our participants are also taking society's racial, gender and human rights contexts into consideration.
