The Human Rights Education Series

Education in human rights is itself a fundamental human right and also a responsibility: the Preamble of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) exhorts every individual and every organ of society to ãstrive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms.ä Published by the Human Rights Resource Center at the University of Minnesota in partnership with the Stanley Foundation, the Human Rights Education Series seeks to meet this responsibility by providing resources for the ever-growing body of educators and activists seeking to build a culture of human rights in the United States and throughout the world. The HRE Series is edited by Nancy Flowers.
