The 9th International Conferences on Human Rights Education (ICHRE) is calling for paper and workshop proposals. Proposals must relate to one or more of the conference themes and must help to achieve the conference goals and objectives.
The theme for this year is, “Unleashing the Full Potential of Civil Society.” The conference will be held November 26-29, 2018 in Sydney, Australia. The Conference is expected to be attended by some 400 Australia and international HRE experts, practitioners, decision makers and thought leaders from government, civil society, academia and the private sector.
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. It will cover the range of human rights education (HRE) issues such as national and international curricula, pedagogy and best practices, including in the context of discrimination faced by the First Nations, women, persons with disabilities, the LGBTIQ communities and those of refugee and minority cultural and religious backgrounds.
