Human Rights Education 

IRN Start Date: 1 May 2019

 

Abstract:  

Although promoted by the United Nations since the 1970s, Human Rights Education (HRE) is a rapidly emerging interdisciplinary field of research and scholarship across the world seeing the launch of two specialised academic journals since 2017. The co-ordinators, highly cited pioneers in the field, have invited 12 leading and emerging scholars from 9 countries and 4 continents to constitute our network. All are members of the international editorial board of Human Rights Education Review. The first objective of the IRN is to develop a community and draw on each other’s work. We will arrange a series of webinars studying texts by our members. We will also compile a state-of-the-art review in the form of a global annotated bibliography of human rights education organised by members’ specialised topics (e.g. the law; children’s rights; minority perspectives; post-conflict education; social studies) or a geographical perspective (e.g. Europe, East Asia, America, Southern Africa).
