Popular Education for Human Rights – A Guide

Popular Education for Human Rights is a trainer’s guide for human rights activists.  It is deliberately not copyrighted in solidarity with those involved in popular education and community organizing.  Any non-governmental organization or educator may copy and adapt it to local settings and culture. In doing so, please, acknowledge the author and source.  The manual was designed for non-formal education, and gives teachers options appropriate for participants with minimal literacy skills.   The emphasis is on the concerns of marginalized groups including the rural poor, women and children.  The participatory  exercises can, as well, be used in formal education.  The illustrations are by Emma Ridgway, a London-based artist.  Her drawings here are designed for easy emulation by facilitators using chalk and “wipe-board” visual presentations.
