Human rights education and social responsibility

Human rights and fundamental freedoms are essential to personal development but also to societies and the rule of law. At the same time, citizens have obligations towards the society in which they live, these obligations being essential to maintaining social rights and achieving the general interest. The link between rights and obligations refers to the notion of responsibility, a concept of both juridical and moral nature, which is an individual and collective exigency. Liberties involve responsibilities towards others and towards society, in a democracy, the equality of rights having as corollary the equality of obligations. In this sense, responsibility is a fundamental component of democratic citizenship. In the process of social responsibility, school and education, especially education for human rights but also education for citizenship and sustainable development, have a major role to play. Through training, information and awareness-raising actions, they contribute to citizenship accountability that is indispensable for respecting, protecting and effectively promoting human rights. 

Keywords: human rights, social responsibility, citizenship obligations, accountability, education for human rights

Gender equality and education for gender equality - the role of the UN

Gender equality is a fundamental human right and a prerequisite for achieving a democratic, solid and sustainable society, but although important progress has been made in different areas, gender equality continues to be one of the major global challenges. There are still in today’s society gender stereotypes, mentalities, customs, prejudices and sexist manifestations that limit women and men to traditional roles and the possibilities, especially of women, to fully exercise their fundamental rights and which are an obstacle to achieving gender equality. The education system plays an essential role not only in producing and reproducing these inequalities, but also in transforming the system of values and the behavioral patterns and in promoting the gender equality paradigm. Achieving equality between women and men is a priority for the UN which, since its creation, has been actively involved in combating all forms of discrimination based on sex.

Keywords: gender equality, gender equality education, international norms to promote the gender equality paradigm

Promoting human rights through the curricula in pre-university education

Through the social sciences studied by students in pre-university education, the premises of a culture of human rights are created. Social education involves the development of critical thinking and, at the same time, the promotion of human rights. Through its anthropocentric character, philosophy allows deepening of knowledge and education to foster the specific values of a democratic society.
