Challenging anti-Muslim Prejudice and Promotion of Mutual Understanding in Multicultural Societies through Education

Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights (EDC/HRE)

Charter - Next steps

On 27-28 June a consultation meeting was organised in Strasbourg on the follow up to be given to the conclusions of the Conference “Human Rights and Democracy in Action - Looking Ahead: The impact of the Council of Europe Charter on Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights Education”. The participants examined the recommendations summed up on the Conference Report and the first Report on the Implementation of the Charter (2012), and proposed specific actions to be taken by the Council of Europe in the years to come. These proposals will be further discussed by the network of the coordinators for education for democratic citizenship and human rights (November 2013), the Steering Committee for Educational Policy and Practice (December 2013) and other relevant committees and partners, and will provide the basis for the Council of Europe programme of activities in this area in 2014-2015.
