‘HEART’ is an EU Tempus Funded project to develop courses and programmes in Human Rights at Universities in five countries in the Western Balkans in cooperation with EU Universities.
The project, led by the Crucible Centre for Human Rights Research, is uniquely focused on human rights education in Universities – aiming to integrate human rights across the academic curriculum in each University, as well as develop undergraduate and graduate
The United Declaration on Human Rights Education and Training, unanimously adopted by the United Nations in December 2011 explains that the teaching of human rights should be undertaken from three perspectives
1)Teaching about human rights – giving students knowledge of human rights
2)Teaching for human rights – empowering students to protect their own rights and the rights of others
3)Teaching through human rights – a learning environment that respects the rights of students, staff and administrators
