A Manual for Starting
Human Rights Education

A Manual for Starting
Human Rights Education

 

This manual is for teachers and others who work with young people and who want to introduce human rights in their educational practices. It is designed to be a basic introduction, with age-specific activities for younger and older children. There is also advice on methodology, and help for those who want to go further into this subject. The approach stresses the practical rather than theoretical.

The manual was written in response to a need expressed by Amnesty International members and other Human Rights Education activists in the region of Central and Eastern Europe. The material has therefore been adapted or specially written for this region. Please bear this in mind if you use the activities in another region.

It could not have been written and produced without the hard work of Nick Wilson and Branka Emeršic.

Valuable comments were made by Felisa Tibbitts, Nancy Flowers, Hugh Starkey, Jana Kviecinsk, Corina Leca and Jana Ondrckov. Kerry Howard, Ulrike Zimmermann and Anna Henry typed much of the text. Special thanks are due for some activities to the Citizenship Foundation, William Kriedler and Thomas Lickona.

You are encouraged to photocopy, translate and adapt this text for your own use.

If you live in Europe, please check with the Amnesty International Europe Program Regional Development Team at the address below before translating passages which might already be available in your language, and send a copy of your completed translation/adaptation to the Team, who can also supply you with more copies in English.

Enquiries about the content of the manual and its use outside Europe should be addressed to:
