Human Rights Education


Delivery Charges : 200 INR (Extra)


This book presents a critical investigation of the creation, dissemination, and consumption of HRE as well as an analysis of how the discourse is created historically, socially, and politically via the practice of global organizations and local NGOs. The concept that HRE is formed of ideas of human and education, which are both complicated and have a myriad of facets, is presented at the beginning of the book. The book demonstrates how, over the course of time, a dominant discourse of HRE, which was constructed by the institutional framework of the United Nations, has come to prominence. It also demonstrates how this dominant discourse is reproduced and validated through the practice of intermediary NGOs involved in HRE activities to community groups. A large number of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) all over the globe are using human rights education (HRE) as a method of community empowerment with the strong conviction that it would assist people in leading better lives. These processes may be understood in a number of different ways, one of which is that they convert universal human rights speech using words and symbols that make them relevant to the day-to-day lives of individuals and that have cultural resonance. However, an alternative and more radical viewpoint is that such processes should participate people in modes of critical examination into the ways that current power structures keep the status quo and regulate not only how we comprehend and speak regarding social injustice and but also how we act on it. This is a more radical perspective.
