Recording of panel discussion 'Teaching for Social Transformation' now available

Cambridge, 20 May 2011 -- On 21 April, HREA, the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and the Civic and Moral Education Initiative at the Harvard Graduate School of Education co-sponsored the panel presentation "Teaching for Social Transformation: Approaches to Human Rights Education in India, Lebanon, and Turkey".

The presenters were HREA's Executive Director Felisa Tibbitts, Monisha Bajaj (Assistant Professor of Education, Teachers College, Columbia University) and Zeena Zakharia (Tueni Fellow, Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, Harvard Kennedy School of Government). They critically explored the "empowerment model" of human rights education both conceptually and in practice. Examples from the formal and nonformal learning sectors in India, Lebanon and Turkey were used to investigate programme variations and evidence of outcomes within these national contexts.
