Focus on Growing up in Multicultural Societies: Education


Un Portale per le Scuole di Diritti Umani/ Portal for Human Rights Schools
The Portal for Human Rights Schools offers resources for schools, policy makers, educators, students, and individuals interested in the implementation of a human rights-based approach (HRBA) to schooling. A human rights-based approach to schooling is concerned with the organisation of learning so that it is reflective of human rights principles and promotes understanding and cherishing of the human rights framework.
Un portale che offre risorse per un’educazione basata sul principio del rispetto dei Diritti Umani, che deve riflettersi anche nell’organizzazione dell’apprendimento.

A Program to evaluate and improve local environments ‘Growing Up in Cities’ fits well with the priorities of the MOST Programme, which concern scientific and policy approaches to social development and the management of social transformations, particularly in the areas of multiculturalism, migration, urbanization, and local and regional coping processes in response to global phenomena.

Un programma internazionale disegnato per coinvolgere i giovani nella valutazione e nel miglioramento degli ambienti in cui vivono, con particolare attenzione all’area del multiculturalismo, dell’immigrazione e in generale delle risposte ai fenomeni di respiro globale.


Diritti negati: l’educazione per le Minoranze (2009) / MInorities Rights Report (2009)
Millions of European children still denied an education – new global report (2009) 

Although Europe boasts high standards of education, for children from minority communities segregated classes, obstacles to mother tongue education and difficulties with integration are resulting in discrimination and sometimes exclusion.

Un rapporto denuncia le carenze educative a danno delle comunità di minoranza, che vedono negati alcuni loro diritti, tra i quali quello all’educazione nella loro lingua madre.
