Becoming a human rights friendly school: a guide for schools around the world

The Human Rights Friendly Schools project is Amnesty International’s global human rights education project for schools. It aims to empower young people and promote the active participation of all members of the school community in integrating human rights values and principles into all areas of school life. This guide's objective is to support schools to implement the Human Rights Friendly Schools project. Sections One and Two provide background and an overview of the entire project. Sections Three to Four can be referred to as a resource as the actors work to make their school human rights friendly. The guide includes case studies from schools which have already begun their journey towards being human rights friendly. It also gives references to other supporting resources and tools.
