Fifth International Conference on Human Rights Education
December 16, 2014
Last week in Washington, DC was big for NewKnowledge. Dr. Norlander, a member of our research team, served on a panel about Innovative Ways to Create and Nurture a Human Rights Education Culture at the Fifth International Conference on Human Rights Education. She presented her paper, The Contributions of Digital Communications Technology to Human Rights Education: A Case Study of Amnesty International. Her talk focused on an interactive educational platform called Respect My Rights. This innovative tool is a way of addressing the World Program for Human Rights Education (WPHRE) criteria – that human rights education focus not only knowledge of rights, but also developing skills and cultivating attitudes and behaviors aligned with human rights principles. Respect My Rights enables people to add their voice and take action for change in their lives and communities.
