The Global Human Rights Education List
The Global Human Rights Education listserv was launched in May 1999. The membership of this "community of practice" has grown since then to over 8,100 human rights defenders and educators in 190 countries (June 2011). This moderated forum has regular messages with upcoming trainings and conferences; studies and "lessons learned"; human rights education resources; and new activities from around the world. The List also serves as an international forum for policy making in human rights education. For further information, read the List introduction and the List Policy.
HREA organised an On-line Forum on the Second Phase of the World Programme for Human Rights Education from 17 June-14 July 2009.
From 29 September-26 October 2005 an On-line Global Forum on the relation between human rights education and other "educations" took place.
In July-August 2000 the listserv was a platform for the Mid-term review of the United Nations Decade for Human Rights Education, at the request of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. A similar discussion forum on the Follow-up to the UN Decade for Human Rights Education was organised in November-December 2002. From 14 June-18 July 2004, HREA and partners organised a Global Consultation on the World Programme for Human Rights Education for non-governmental organisations and other civil society actors on the Global Human Rights Education listserv and six regional listservs, reaching over 15,000 educators and activists worldwide.
