Why do we need human rights education? What are the key challenges facing human rights education in a world that is becoming more integrated and digital? How are governments fairing in terms of their commitments to upholding human rights? How do we make educational systems inclusive and respectful of minority rights?
These were some of the tough questions that sparked meaningful conversations our team had with experts on human rights education recorded live at the sidelines of the 19th Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights on 4-6 November 2019 in Tromsø, Norway. Introducing “Conversations on Human Rights Education”, we bring you ASEF’s first-ever podcast series that tackles the various strands of human rights discourse on education in Asia and Europe.
The production covers experts’ take on various issues surrounding human rights education, including why we need to know what our rights are, the lack of inclusivity in education and the mounting general backlash against human rights across the globe.
