Projects and experiences of Civil Service at the University Human Rights Centre
Since 2008, the Human Rights Centre has organised annual projects in the fields of education, cultural promotion and peace education for the National Civil Service (Italian Law 64/2001).
The general purpose is to enforce the activities of the Archive "Pace diritti umani - Peace Human Rights". Volunteers are involved in the following activities:
- development of tools for the communication and spreading of contents elaborated in the Centre's research areas, both at the regional level, by means of interaction with institution and local authorities, schools and NGOs, and at the national and international levels;
- promotion of a culture of pace, human rights and universal citizenship founded on international human rights law;
- writing and online publishing of multimedia and editorial contents for the website Archive Pace Diritti Umani – Peace Human Rights, in both Italian and English:
- updates on activities and initiatives of the United Nations and of other international and regional organisations;
- updating of existing data-bases: International legal instruments, international human rights law, human rights of persons with disabilities, associations and NGOs in Veneto;
- collaboration in the organisation and promotion of conferences, seminars and post-graduate courses;
- support in the management of the library and of the documentation services connected with the education and training activities of the Centre; update of the specialised library catalogue, support to users, and to the students of the Degree Courses, of the European Master in Human Rights and Democratisation and of Special high education courses;
