- Publication Type:

- Issue Date:
Human rights education is currently a popular topic amongst educators and academics. The emphasis on education reflects a departure from a strictly legal understanding of human rights and a move towards an emphasis on pedagogy and social justice. However, the history of human rights education in Australia is a limited and fragmentary one; in the past, civics and citizenship educational programs have generally been seen as more important. These programs ostensibly seek to develop informed and active citizens through formal schooling curricula.
