Democracy in the making. Good practices from five years of Regional Summer Academies "Democracy at School and Human Rights in Action"

Ted Huddleston

Council of Europe

Abstract: The booklet highlights some of the innovative practice which has emerged since the academies were established. It shows just what can be achieved when education for democratic citizenship and human rights is taken seriously in schools, and encourages educational practitioners and decision-makers to further action in this field. Linking policy with practice, it also shows how the Council of Europe Charter on Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights Education can be used as a key reference point for all those dealing with citizenship and human rights education and confirms the central role of this important political framework in raising awareness of core European values and encouraging the active engagement of Europe's citizens.
