Sen, Abdulkerim – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2020
In an effort to support the curricular institutionalisation of human rights education (HRE) as a school subject, Walter Parker has proposed a curriculum model based on the powerful knowledge (PK) thesis developed by a group of social realist educators. This article aims to contribute to this worthwhile endeavour to develop a consensual HRE…

Tibbitts, Felisa; Katz, Susan Roberta – Prospects: Quarterly Review of Comparative Education, 2017
Human rights education (HRE), like the wider international human rights project, is a bold attempt to influence laws and state policies, while at the same time inspiring people to connect human rights to their everyday lives. In terms of incorporating HRE within the formal education sector, HRE is dependent upon the good will of state actors. To…

Robinson, Carol; Phillips, Louise; Quennerstedt, Ann – Educational Review, 2020
The United Nations (UN) asserts that children and young people should have access to human rights education (HRE) and that schools are one of the key means through which HRE should be made available.

Vesterdal, Knut – Human Rights Education Review, 2019
Human rights education (HRE) has been recognised in international educational discourses as a sustainable practice to develop active citizenship and protect human dignity.

Liang, Weihong – Journal of Moral Education, 2020
Extant research elucidates the debates underpinning a universal or relative approach to human rights. While closely related, human rights education (HRE) is elusive, as there are different views about appropriate goals and content, though teaching human rights has been globally recognized in various international documents. Since 2006, the Chinese…

Rinaldi, Stefanie – Prospects: Quarterly Review of Comparative Education, 2017
In Swiss high schools, teachers have significant leeway in determining the learning objectives and contents of curricula, including the recommended transversal theme of human rights. Teachers' views on human rights and human rights education (HRE) are, therefore, a determining factor for HRE's successful implementation. This article presents the…

Parker, Walter C. – Human Rights Education Review, 2018
Employing a theoretical perspective from the critical sociology of education, this article identifies a curriculum problem in human rights education (HRE) in schools and suggests strategies to solve it. The main problem is HRE's lack of an "episteme"--a disciplinary structure created in specialist communities--and, related to this, the…

Ahmed, A. Kayum – Prospects: Quarterly Review of Comparative Education, 2017
While human rights education (HRE) provides the tools for emancipation, it remains susceptible to appropriation by authoritarian regimes who seek to entrench state power. Classification scholars who typologize approaches to HRE fail to acknowledge that state entities could employ human rights discourse to reinforce state sovereignty. Consequently,…

Findings reveal a difference in the…

Tavares, Celma – Educational Action Research, 2016
Human rights education (HRE) aims to achieve a change of mindsets and social attitudes that entails the construction of a culture of respect towards those values it teaches. Although HRE is a recent field of study, its consolidation in Latin America is a fact. During the latest decades several authors have carried out research related to HRE that…

This paper analyses the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the 'education rights' of children in the Irish context, with a particular focus on children's/human rights education (C/HRE). C/HRE can support children and young people to understand and explore the issues which limit people's lives and consider actions to uphold their own rights and the…

Zembylas, Michalinos – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2016
This article takes up Foucault's politics of human rights and suggests that it may constitute a point of departure for the renewal of HRE, not only because it rejects the moral superiority of humanism--the grounding for the dominant liberal framework of international human rights--but also because it makes visible the complexities of human rights…

As the needs and interests of young people are shifting under the influence of demographics and other social developments, "new stories" have started to attract many that undermine the human rights narrative and nurture radical attitudes.
