The agenda for a seminar on teaching human rights for the seminar centered on presentations of three background papers. Topics covered at the seminar: (1) teaching of human rights through the training of law enforcement personnel, lawyers, judges, and consideration of international standards vs. actual institutional practice; (2) teaching of human rights to teachers at all levels, including those at police academies with attention focused on questions of discipline(s), contents and methods; and (3) non-formal education and methods and their target groups--parents, religious leaders, labor union leaders, professional associations, and village councils, addressing the questions of individual and collective rights vs. duties, and inductive teaching (real-life situations). Discussions followed the presentations and are reflected in this report. A roster of participants is listed. (LAP)
