Certificate of Advanced Studies in Human Rights Education at University of Teacher Education Central Switzerland (Luzern, January-December 2013)
Human rights are the fundament of a peaceful coexistence of a society. But only when women and men know about their human rights, they can claim them for themselves and - in solidarity - for others ("empowerment"). Human rights education is taking place in different contexts (formal, non-formal,...). To close the global gap in further training opportunities in human rights education, in the context of and linked with the new UN Declaration of Human Rights Education and Training adopted by the UN General Assembly in December 2011 and because of the high interest in the "Certificate of Advanced Studies CAS in Human Rights Education", the University of Teacher Education Central Switzerland (PHZ) is running again in 2013 an international advanced qualification, the "Certificate of Advanced Studies CAS in Human Rights Education" starting in January 2013. The CAS Human Rights Education aims to qualify the participants for a role as trainer and multiplier of human rights education for their specific context.
The participants will achieve an internationally recognized Certificate of Advanced Studies PHZ in Human Rights Education.
