image of World Programme for Human Rights Education

Human rights education makes an essential contribution to the realization of all human rights. In 2004, the General Assembly proclaimed the World Programme for Human Rights Education (2005-ongoing) with a view to support and encourage national action and strengthen partnerships and cooperation. The third phase (2015-2019) of the World Programme focuses on strengthening implementation of the first two phases and promoting human rights training for media professionals and journalists; adopted by the United Nations Human Rights Council in 2014, this plan of action provides practical guidance for implementing this phase nationally. It targets all stakeholders, including governments, national human rights institutions, civil society organizations, higher education institutions as well as intergovernmental organizations.
