DARE network engages in “Human Rights Education 2020” coalition

Amnesty International, HREA, Soka Gokkai International and nine other organisations launched in December 2013 “Human Rights Education 2020”, a global civil society coalition aimed to promote human rights education by supporting and strengthening the implementation of existing international standards and commitments. On the second anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration on Human Rights Education and Training by the United Nations General Assembly on 19 December 2011, HRE 2020 calls for greater accountability of governments and seeks to this purpose to strengthen the capacity of civil society to use international human rights mechanisms, instruments, standards and policies. The Democracy and Human Rights Education in Europe (DARE Network) joined the movement along with many other organisations committed to advance human rights education.
