X Inter-American Report on Human Rights Education. Development of policies for safety and peaceful coexistence in the schools with a focus on rights

Publicada en diciembre del 2011

Today’s education community has grown discouraged as it faces a critical panorama of insecurity in Latin America and the Caribbean. The region therefore has a pressing need for this Tenth Report on Human Rights Education that presents progress made and gaps encountered in public policies to prevent violence in the schools. It builds on a pioneering initiative launched by the Minister of Education and Vice President of El Salvador, Salvador Sánchez Cerén, and the Minister of Education of Uruguay, Ricardo Erlich, two leaders who promoted the Inter-American Covenant on Human Rights Education in the Americas in June, 2010 in Lima Peru, with the backing of the inter-American human rights community. As Executive Director of the IIHR, I have repeatedly stressed that democracy is founded on education in general and human rights education in particular. Thus public policies for education are paramount for promoting the socialization of our young people in a safe setting that fosters peaceful coexistence with a focus on human rights, a culture of peace and democratic citizenship.
