HUMAN RIGHTS EDUCATION

 

Human rights education aims to provide people with an understanding of human rights issues and equip them with the skills to articulate their rights. Human rights education also addresses the attitudes and values of people in relation to human rights principles.

Through human rights education people learn to communicate these competences to others and take action to stop and prevent human rights violations.
