Dear HRE Colleagues, The Mauritian Ministry of Education is currently working on a Plan of Action to promote Human Rights Education in primary/secondary schools and include Human Rights in its national curriculum. The Office of the UN Resident Coordinator in Mauritius, OHCHR Southern Africa (SARO), and UNESCO Tanzania will be supporting this initiative, starting with a consultancy which will (1) assess current educational policies/classroom practices and teachers’ pre-service/in-service training programmes, (2) assist the Ministry of Education and the Mauritian Institute of Education in a review/revision of the curriculum, and (3) identify additional strategies to further promote / raise awareness of Human / Children’s Rights among the youth (creation of Human Rights Clubs, specific advocacy campaigns). We would be very much interested in receiving examples of Terms of Reference used for similar exercises in other countries, and would also welcome recommendations of eligible experts for this type of consultancy -- either from within the UN System or external candidates, preferably with combined Human Rights -- Education/curriculum development experience, and a strong familiarity with HRE international provisions (UN Decade, World Programme) / OHCHR-UNESCO publications ("ABC: Teaching Human Rights -- Practical activities for primary and secondary schools", "All human beings… Manual for Human Rights Education", etc.). Thanking you very much in advance for your valuable feedback. With best regards, Jullien Woirin UN Coordination Analyst / Human Rights Focal Point Office of the UN Resident Coordinator in Mauritius & Seychelles E-mail: < > ======== Global Human Rights Education listserv ======= Send mail intended for the list to < >.
