What does HRE entail ?

Human rights education is understood as the notions contained in numerous treaties as well as the manner in which they have been interpreted by different actors, particularly organs created by treaties.

a) Human Rights through a Pedagogical Intermediary: This means ensuring that all educational components and means, including syllabi, manuals, methods and the overall learning programme, are conducive to human rights education.

b) Human Rights in Education: This means ensuring that the basic rights of anyone involved in the educational system are respected and able to be exercised.

Thus, HRE is about rights through education and education through rights.
