Towards a Just Society: The Personal Journeys of Human Rights Educators

563 pages7 hours


Although tremendous strides have been made toward the realization of universal human rights, the ongoing struggle to protect and expand these rights demands inspired, dedicated people. Accepting this challenge and taking up the cause of justice and equality for all persons, human rights educators represent a vital link between political and social movements, and ideas, attitudes, and hopes that are in harmony with a spirit of advocacy for human rights.

Towards a Just Society is intended for educators at all levels, pre-service teachers, higher education professionals, activists, social workers, and community leaders who are interested in developing initiatives in human rights education. Although extremely diverse in experience, the authors share a common belief in the power of human rights for social change, and their narratives also reflect the authors’ individual engagement with significant events of the twentieth century critical to the construction and attainment of human rights.
