Co-Creating a Human Rights Culture

Universal Human Rights Education Implementation

logo-globeThe Universal Human Rights Education Implementation Project seeks to implement and evaluate human rights education for community members, organizations, and professionals. The training is offered in an intensive one to three day training format. The training modules include: introduction to the human rights and social justice perspectives and how they intersect with personal and inter-professional values, ethics and practice in local and global contexts.   Participants learn a practice framework that integrates a human rights perspective which promotes the human rights ethical foundations of dignity, respect, and well-being of all persons with a social justice perspective which seeks to understand, challenge, and combat oppression, unequal access to resources, and social inequities. Participants engage in critical self-awareness and apply an integrated practice framework that can be used with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities to promote human rights and social and economic justice.

Training Objectives:

Participants who complete this training will be able to:

  1. Practice personal reflection and self-correction to assure continual personal and professional development.
  2. Recognize the extent to which a culture’s structures and values may oppress, marginalize, alienate, or create or enhance privilege and power.
  3. Increase critical thinking
  4. Gain sufficient self-awareness to eliminate the influence of personal biases and values in working with diverse groups.
  5. Understand the forms and mechanisms of oppression and discrimination.

Engage in activities that advance social and economic justice at the personal, structural, and cultural levels.
