In the framework of the ‘Youth for Human Rights’ project, we kicked off by putting together national reports on human rights education (HRE) in the field of youth. All the partners conducted basic desk research and interviews to study the overall state of play when it comes to implementation of HRE in the field of youth.

From the national mappings, a common mapping synthesis report was put together. You can read the report there: mapping synthesis report. All the original national reports can be found in the Annex of the synthesis report. The synthesis report has been distributed by this project’s Training of Trainers (ToT) participants in order to build their national trainings, based on the input gathered.

Apart from this, there is also a transnational mapping report available which has been put together within the framework of this project, and carries these specific purposes:

• To identify the best practices of existing training concepts of (1) training of trainers (ToT), and (2) training of youth workers, as well as (3) educational resources on HRE on transnational level

• To identify the further needs and what is missing (e.g. resources or training needs of key actors) from the ‘current menu’ of existing concepts, approaches, actors, and educational resources on HRE in the field of youth on transnational level, through mapping and focus groups of experts

The best practice of the project as identified in this report, was gathered on the basis of data and overview compiled in the following areas relating to HRE:

• Actors, concepts, educational resources, approaches and training needs in the field of training of trainers, training of youth workers and of youth work students as well as of Erasmus+ NA staff on HRE in the field of youth at European and national levels is achieved’

• Concepts and curricula for training of trainers, of youth workers and of Erasmus+ NA’s staff on human rights education are developed and tested, further adapted and implemented; for this purpose expert analysis of and recommendations for the adaptation and/or development of training tools and materials on HRE suitable for the field of youth is provided

The reports were overseen by a group of Experts, please find the Call for Experts there. The Call for researcher is available there.

Based on the mapings, an independent academic paper was put together by our project Experts on human rights education and youth work in order to bridge the gap in between formal preparation of youth workers to HRE practice in non-formal education. Please read the full paper there.
