Teaching about Human Rights: Learning from Students and Teachers in Four Countries


This session explores principles for teaching about human rights derived from research in schools in the United States, Colombia, Northern Ireland, and the Republic of Ireland. This research illustrates areas in which students have conflicting or incomplete understandings, as well as the differing approaches taken by teachers in varied settings.
