Network of coordinators for citizenship and human rights education
Network of coordinators for citizenship and human rights education


The co-ordinators for Education for democratic citizenship and human rights (EDC/HRE coordinators) are officially nominated contact persons whose main tasks are to ensure that CoE information on this topic is disseminated in the member states and to keep international partners (CoE, network of coordinators, other international organisations when appropriate) informed of EDC/HRE developments in their own countries. Most of the coordinators are representatives of Ministries of Education or similar professional bodies. At their meetings, the coordinators exchange information on recent developments in their countries, discuss future projects and identify possible solutions to common challenges. They provide feedback on the tools and manuals developed by the Council of Europe, and contribute to the organisation of the major events. Increasingly, the coordinators also work in smaller groups on a regional or thematic basis. In particular, three regional groups were established in order to address issues specific to their region: the Baltic/Black Sea Network, the Nordic Network and the South East Europe Network. Over the years, the network of EDC/HRE co-ordinators has become an active and influential community of professionals and decision-makers.
