Welcome to OHCHR's Database on Human Rights Education and Training !
This database, which constitutes a contribution to the
World Programme for Human Rights Education (2005-ongoing),
aims to facilitate information-sharing on resources available worldwide for
human rights education and training. Information is accessible in three
United Nations languages: English, French and Spanish.
The database provides information on:
> institutions which offer human rights education and training programmes
and/or produce education and training materials. They include academic institutes,
research centres, non-governmental organizations as well as intergovernmental organizations
working at the international, regional and national level;
> programmes which foster human rights learning, including trainings,
degree programmes, short and summer courses, conferences, seminars and funding
opportunities such as scholarships and fellowships;
> human rights education and training materials which include manuals,
trainers’ guides, textbooks, curricula and other pedagogical tools, reports of related
conferences and seminars as well as reference materials (bibliographies and directories)
and audiovisuals. The materials are directly linked to the
OHCHR Library Catalogue
where they can be searched.
The database is constantly updated and we welcome your contributions
on relevant items for inclusion. Click on Submit your institutions, programmes and
on the left column to
