Can education spur tangible changes in human rights practice? We believe so.

 

The Lab is launching projects that focus on clinics, schools, and other learning spaces because the future of human rights practice will change when we start changing the way we teach it.  


 

The guiding questions for the Lab's first projects center on education:

  • How can we intervene in legal education to inject social inclusion and human rights frames into the way we learn about domestic rule of law and international human rights law?
  • How can we develop human rights educational tools for the broader public that spread knowledge about human rights, tactical thinking, advocacy and movement building?
  • And how can we measure the impact of specific changes, resources, and methodologies?

These questions have been at the heart of the Lab's pilot projects. We have worked to break down these issues into discrete challenges, and have targeted only specific regions, disciplines, or elements of human rights education.
