Socio-Cultural Case Studies for Population Education in Morocco, Peru, Rwanda and the United Republic of Tanzania. Co-ordinated Action Programme for the Advancement of Population Education (CAPAPE).
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France). Population Education Section.
Developed to serve as a guide, this document contains four case studies which demonstrate the application of a conceptual and methodological reference model which promotes the use of socio-cultural research in national population education projects. Information obtained from these kinds of studies can be used in developing population education programs and curricula which reflect the values and needs of specific population groups including teachers, educators, parents, adolescents, researchers, doctors, development workers, and decision makers. The introduction discusses the frames of reference and fundamental concepts that guided the studies and outlines the general methodology. The main body of the document provides the summary reports of the case studies of the four different countries. The final chapter evaluates the socio-cultural studies, discusses strategies for population education, and outlines appropriate educational practices. (DC)
