6th International Human Rights Education Conference

The University College Roosevelt (UCR) and Human Rights Education Associates (HREA) are honored to announce that the Sixth International Human Rights Education Conference will be hosted in Middelburg, the Netherlands.

Deeply inspired by Roosevelt’s speech on the Four Freedoms, the University College Roosevelt and HREA invite you to participate in this exciting event and reflect on how the Four Freedoms can be translated to today’s world. The conference will join together as many people working in the field of human rights as possible, with some focus on the UN and the UN World Programme for Human Rights Education. This conference, being the sixth annual edition, will continue to encourage a forum for the exchange of ideas and information and facilitate open discussion on Human Rights Education amongst participants.
