The Provision of Non-Formal Education for Human Rights in Zimbabwe.
This book provides insight into human rights activities of organizations in Zimbabwe, placing the need for human rights education in legal, political, social, and economic contexts. Data come from a research project on human rights education in Zimbabwe. The book criticizes the objectives and programs of people in the field from legal and educational perspectives, arguing that emphasis has been on civil and political rights rather than economic, social, and cultural rights and what the law should be. It states that people must be educated on knowing their rights and knowing when their rights are abused. It suggests that human rights education programs in Zimbabwe do not reflect the principles of universality, integration participation, and interdisciplinarity. There are seven chapters: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Theoretical Aspects of Non-Formal Human Rights Education"; (3) "The Legal, Political, Economic, Social and Cultural Environment"; (4) "Actors in Non-Formal Human Rights Education: A Qualitative Analysis"; (5) "Actors in Non-Formal Human Rights Education: A Quantitative Analysis"; (6) "Target Groups of Non-Formal Human Rights Education"; and (7) "Conclusions and Recommendations." Three appendixes present: the project proposal; organizations and institutions involved in human rights education; and study participants (professionals, college students, school students, and adults).
