Global Human Rights Education Network

The Global Human Rights Education Network is an information and advocacy network that promotes learning and training in the field of human rights. Membership is open to all organisations that support the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and are involved in education and training activities promoting the human rights framework. The Global HRE Network is a project of Human Rights Education Associates (HREA).

The Global Human Rights Education Network was inspired by the vibrancy of the informal network of educators and trainers who participate in the Global Human Rights Education listserv as well as regional listservs of our partners, which connects over 10,000 individuals and organisations engaded in human rights education (HRE) worldwide. Support has been provided by UNESCO, the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Reebok Human Rights Foundation.

The objectives of the Global HRE Network are:

  • To promote information sharing among membership
  • To support the sharing of good practice in carrying out education and training activities
  • To advocate for human rights education and training in all sectors, as called for in the United Nations World Programme for Human Rights Education.

Members continue to have the benefits of information about training courses and on-line learning and training tools hosted on the HREA website. In addition, members receive annually an updated, electronic version of the Directory of the Global Human Rights Education Network.
