Human Rights Education

Recognising the potential of Human Rights Education the Partnership has a specific objective of promoting European citizenship, human rights education and respect for diversity. Following the publication of the Arabic translation of Compass, the manual on Human Rights Education with young people, the Partnership has launched a series of regional training courses in HRE in the Arabic-speaking region. The purpose of these courses is to support the emergence of networks of trainers and multipliers in the Arabic-speaking region and to develop the capacity of youth organisations to introduce Human Rights Education in their work. Most of the activities organised within this Partnership agreement are implemented in cooperation with local partners.
