Human Rights Education: Mapping the Field
Monisha Bajaj, University of San Francisco
In this talk, Monisha Bajaj discusses the field of human rights
education (HRE)--its origins, development and currents trends in
research and practice. She will provide information about the rise of
the field and how it has gained popularity while also tracing different
perspectives on what constitutes valid human rights education
scholarship. Dr. Bajaj will also highlight insights and lessons from
her new book Human Rights Education: Theory, Research, Praxis that seeks
to be a foundational textbook for students and scholars of HRE.
Monisha Bajaj is Professor and Chair of International and Multicultural Education at the University of San Francisco. Dr. Bajaj is the editor and author of six books, including, most recently, Human Rights Education: Theory, Research, Praxis (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2017), as well as numerous articles. She has also developed curriculum—particularly related to peace education, human rights, anti-bullying efforts and sustainability—for non-profit organizations and inter-governmental organizations, such as UNICEF and UNESCO.
