Human rights education
In recognition of the potential of Human Rights Education (HRE), the EU-CoE youth partnership has a specific objective of promoting european citizenship, human rights education and respect for diversity.
Following publication of the Arabic translation of Compass, the manual on human rights education involving young people, the partnership has launched a series of regional training courses in the Arabic-speaking region. The purpose of these courses is to support the emergence of networks of trainers and multipliers in the Arabic-speaking region and to develop the capacity of youth organisations to introduce human rights education in their work.
Most of the activities organised within this EU-CoE youth partnership agreement are carried out in co-operation with local partners.
Citizenship matters: the participation of young women and minorities in Euro-Med youth projects
19-29 April 2004, Alexandria (Egypt)
in cooperation with the Swedish Institute in Alexandria
This seminar addressed thematic issues related to the Euro-Med programme, which are equally relevant to the human rights culture, namely women's rights, minority rights and approaches with a view to young people's citizenship and participation of young people. In a practical part of the course, the participants had to identify guidelines for applying those principles during youth exchanges and other Euro-Med projects.
