Teachers often struggle to find appropriate teaching resources for citizenship and human rights education. Those which are currently available vary greatly in quality and coverage of topics is patchy.

The six Council of Europe “Living Democracy” manuals provide teachers with high-quality lesson materials which have been tested by educators in several countries and are flexible enough to enable both experienced and trainee teachers to introduce citizenship and human rights education into their schools in a fun, interactive and challenging way. They draw on expert authors from different parts of Europe and cover the whole age range from primary to secondary or high school.
