Human Rights Education based on the Manual 'UNDERSTANDING HUMAN RIGHTS' III


Project summary:

Since 2003 the ETC publishes the Manual „Understanding Human Rights“, which by now is available in 15 languages. The Manual includes 13 modules on various human rights, incorporating theoretical knowledge and practical examples as well as pedagogical and further training material. In the beginning of 2011 the ETC started the third project on Human Rights Education based on the Manual ‘Understanding Human Rights’ III. The aim of the project is the complete revision and extension of the English version of the Manual, as well as the development and realisation of a Train-the-Trainers workshop in Addis Ababa, focusing on country specific key topics and bringing together multipliers from Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda from various fields such as education, justice, police, military, NGOs and civil society.
