Skill level

This interactive online seminar explores the questions: How can education promote sustainable peace? What are human rights and how do they play a role in formal and informal educational systems? And, how can we assist educators integrate sustainable peace and human rights discourse into school and educational curriculums and how human rights can change the future of schooling?

We will begin with an overview of the methodologies of sustainable peace practices and human right education, while covering a wide range of civil and political rights, economic and social rights, and women’s rights and their expression in educational (formal and informal) curriculums and textbooks. We will explore human rights as a governing principle for dialogue and as a basic principle for living together, and focus on human rights education as a means to working towards the materialization of the cosmopolitan ideals of justice and peace.

Making use of the tools available to us in the realm of online seminars, the course will develop around the realization of sustainable peace, human rights' histories and her-stories through a Sustainable Peace Human Rights Book Project. Working in groups, this project will mobilize students to dream, develop, design, write and produce an online video of virtual children’s book on a human right campaign, organization or activist from the past or present.
