New PDHRE publication: "Human Rights Learning: a Peoples' Report" Human Rights Learning: a Peoples' Report argues the case and imperatives of human rights learning at the community level, a unique compilation of articles and case studies that brings together in one volume the history, theory and practice of human rights as a way of life, a framework for action for social change. Written as "a narrative of organic, experiential knowledge, generated by communities in resistance and suffering people in solidarity of one another," the Report differs from scholarly and bureaucratic reports. It rings out with the immediacy and authenticity of the authors who lived events they write about and whose lives are fully engaged in the learning experience they share. Their voices offer a response to incredulous skeptics about the potency of human rights learning to affect peoples’ daily lives. The diversity of the subjects covered in this report is indicative of broad reach of human rights learning to all facets of life and the successful outcomes of innovative and transformative pedagogies developed in Argentina, Cambodia, China, India, Guatemala, Israel, Japan, Sri Lanka, and elsewhere. These "stories" are supported by articles on the concept of human rights and human rights learning, the way popular literacy education serves as a model for human rights learning in the community and pertinence of placing human rights learning solidly at the center of the global agenda, It is this last element that will serve as an inspiration to all people -- women, men, children and youth -- in all corners of the world who seek to live in dignity as a community. Human Rights Learning a Peoples' Report will be of interest to Governments, NGOs, community leaders, human rights educators and activists, members of international organizations and all who believe that every human being has the right to live in dignity and thus must know human rights. The press conference was sponsored by The Slovenian Mission to the UN, and PDHRE, The Peoples' Movement of Human Rights Learning on the occasion of the publication of "Human Rights Learning: a Peoples' Report". Honorable Justice Richard Goldstone, Ambassador Walther Lichem, and Shulamith Koenig - recipient of the United Nations Human Rights Award - made presentations and answer questions.
