9th International Conference on Human Rights Education (ICHRE) - Unleashing the Full Potential of Civil Society
26-29 November 2018, Western Sydney University, Parramatta South Campus
The International Conferences on Human Rights Education (ICHRE) are a series of dialogues on human rights education as a means of promoting democracy, the rule of law, justice, and intercultural and social harmony. Since its beginnings in Sydney, Australia, in 2010, conferences have been held in South Africa, Poland, Taiwan, USA, Holland, Chile and Canada.
The 9th ICHRE will coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the 25th anniversary of the education-oriented Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action. Much work has been done to improve knowledge and education about these principles of human rights globally. But there is still much work to do to embed these principles into everyday thinking where they can underpin civil society.
