DATABASE ON HUMAN RIGHTS EDUCATION AND TRAINING
This database, which constitutes a contribution to the UN Decade for Human Rights Education (1995-2004) and to the World Programme for Human Rights Education (2005-ongoing), provides information on organizations, programmes and materials for human rights education and training. It aims to facilitate information-sharing on the many resources available in these areas. Information is accessible in three United Nations languages: English, French and Spanish.
The database is divided into four sections, which are all inter-linked:
' General (which shows all database documents together)
Since January 2005, the database is under revision. Therefore, concerning human rights education and training materials, please refer to the OHCHR Library catalogue at: (http://www.ohchr.org/english/library/index.htm). For basic search please type only one keyword, such as “teaching/training guides” or “secondary school students” or "prison officials" or “human rights education” - and then select «subject» from the right-hand view.
' Institutions (type, name, address, etc.)
' Programmes (type, description, target audience, etc.)
' Materials (bibliographic and substantive information)
New information on institutions, programmes and materials relating to human rights education and training can be forwarded to OHCHR by filling the relevant "Information Sheets".
