A Conference on the Future of Citizenship and Human Rights Education in Europe


Around 300 representatives of governments, education institutions and civil society organisations debated the future of citizenship and human rights education in Europe at a conference in Strasbourg on 20-22 June 2017. 

The participants discussed current challenges and opportunities in this area, shared examples of good practices and lessons learned, and proposed recommendations for future action, including specific criteria and mechanisms for evaluation of progress, in particular in the framework of the Council of Europe Charter on Citizenship and Human Rights Education.

The conclusions of the forthcoming Report on the State of Citizenship and Human Rights Education in Europe provided the basis for discussion and a Declaration has now been published setting out the actions to be taken during the next phase of the Charter’s implementation.

The Conference was organised by the Council of Europe Directorate of Democratic Citizenship and Participation. The first day was held jointly with the Annual Network Conference of the Human Rights Education for Legal Professionals (HELP) Programme of the Council of Europe.
