The Global Human Rights Education List
The Global Human Rights Education listserv is designed
to keep the global human rights education community informed about developments
in the field. This moderated listserv invites contributions in the following
areas: upcoming trainings and conferences; research studies, evaluations;
good practices and "lessons learned"; human rights education
resources (for example: curricula or training manuals); national, regional
or international policies and regulatory frameworks regarding human
rights education; and new initiatives, projects and programmes. The
List is open to anyone interested in human rights education and training.
The Global Human Rights Education listserv is an initiative of Human Rights Education Associates (HREA). HREA is responsible for administration and moderation of the list. For more information, please contact the moderators by e-mail.
We welcome contributions in any language, though the main working language of the list is English. We request that you sign messages to the list with your name and your institutional/organisational affiliation, if applicable.
SEND A MESSAGE TO THE LIST
To send a message to the list you need to write to the list address: .
Please be aware that the list is moderated and that your message may not be distributed on the list immediately after you send it.
POLICIES REGARDING POSTINGS
Currently the listserv has 5601 members from 190 countries (as of 1 October 2008). Due to this large number and the dedication of members, we receive on average ten messages per day. However, we try not to flood subscribers with that many messages, since most subscribers already receive a lot of e-mails daily or have to pay for every byte received. In order to keep a limit on the amount of mail that you receive, we frequently do not post messages (many of them responses to requests for information) to the list, but forward them directly to the individuals that have requested the information. On average, list subscribers will receive two or three messages per day, five days a week.
In order to achieve the objectives of the Global HRE List, the List will be moderated in accordance with the rules listed below.
Rules of the discussion:
1. Submissions need to directly relate to human rights education (HRE). We do not distribute messages that address human rights in general but not human rights education, learning or training (for example, we do not post: job openings that are not specifically related to HRE, urgent alerts, proceedings of conferences that do not directly address HRE). There are many others lists, blogs or websites that address general human rights issues. The Global HRE List is exclusively focused on human rights and education.
2. As a general rule please limit your messages to a maximum of 400 words. In this age of information overload it is good to be brief and to the point! Moreover, many List subscribers literally pay for every byte they receive. Please be considerate.
3. File attachments will *not* be distributed via the list. The reason is that a) this increases the potential spread of computer viruses, and b) the file attachments may be prohibitively large for some List members who have slow or expensive Internet connections. Instead of attaching to your message, please include a URL (web address) where the same information can be found, or include an e-mail address where a copy of the file can be requested.
4. Please be aware that when you hit "reply" to messages received from the List they will be sent back to the list address. In case you want to respond to a list member individually, or want to enquire about a training or scholarship, please compose a new message to the e-mail address mentioned in the announcement. HREA is not responsible for the correct delivery of applications for courses, trainings, fellowships or scholarships that are inadvertently sent to the list address.
5. The Global HRE List has a global membership. Please exercise tolerance and respect toward other participants whose views may differ from your own. Please remain courteous at all times.
6. When you would like to have a personal discussion, or feel offended by a particular message, please send a message to the individual involved only.
7. Profanity and personal attacks are not acceptable at any time.
Messages that violate these rules will *not* be posted to the List.
