HREA is compiling the "Compendium of good practices in the area of human rights education, citizenship education and education for mutual respect and understanding" in conjunction with Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR)/Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), the Council of Europe, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and UNESCO. Submissions have been accepted for the primary and secondary level schooling sectors in addition to teacher training institutions.
