The 9th International Conference on Human Rights Education (9th ICHRE) - on the theme Unleashing the Full Potential of Civil Society - will be held from the 26th to the 29th November 2018, at the Western Sydney University in Australia.
The 9th ICHRE will coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the 25th anniversary of the education-oriented Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action. Much work has been done to improve knowledge and education about these principles of human rights globally. But there is still much work to do to embed these principles into everyday thinking where they can underpin civil society. The conference will cover the range of human rights education (HRE) issues such as national and international curricula, pedagogy and best practices, including in the context of discrimination faced by the First Nations, women, persons with disabilities, the LGBTIQ communities and those of refugee and minority cultural and religious backgrounds. Contemporary challenges to HRE and how to effectively address them will be considered.
The International Conference on Human Rights Education (ICHRE) is the international forum, established by the human rights advocate and social researcher Sev Ozdowski, for practitioners, policy-makers and academics to explore innovative education solutions to global challenges.
