Rights for Everybody – Human Rights Education for Youth Inclusion
Date du début: 1 mai 2015, Date de fin: 31 déc. 2015 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The human right situation in Europe has to be described as very diverse. All member states of the European Union are categorised as free states, following the rating in the Freedom of the World 2014 report (Freedom House) only a few limitations in civil liberty and political rights can be found in some states. However, outside the EU in Europe, the post-soviet area is described by the very same report as a region that features several repressive regimes, with Armenia, Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia categorized as partly free while Azerbaijan, Belarus and Russia fall into the category of non-free states, both in terms of civil liberty and political rights. As diverse as this exemplary rating of European countries is, as different are the forms that human right violation takes in our continent. But all human rights violations have one thing in common: they limit the personal freedom and the chances of young people to develop their potentials in all concerns of their life. Amongst the most common violations of human rights in Europe are restrictions in equal access to education, the labour market and health care as well as violations of the freedom of expression, equality before the law and daily life discriminations against minorities of any type. In this context, the training course took a closer look at human rights violations, in order to strengthen the capacities of youth workers in responding with measures of inclusive youth work to daily forms of discrimination. For this purpose the project brought together 30 youth workers from 10 European countries (Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Macedonia, Moldova, Netherlands, Slovakia and Ukraine) to exchange practices and to engage into a mutual learning processes on human rights and human rights protection. The course included theoretical concepts on human rights protection as well as study visits to human rights defenders in Georgia and provided space and time to design needs-based, outcome-oriented and inclusive youth projects. We used non-formal educational tools, such as workshops, interactive exercises and role plays, sharing approaches, expertise and experience, working meetings with local and regional human rights defenders, team building exercises, creation of own projects and evaluations measures. The specific objectives of the course were: • To understand human rights and the state of human rights violations in European countries, • To deconstruct the interdependencies between human rights and democratic participation, • To identify possible grass-root and youth-based measures for human rights protection, • To plan youth-based follow-up projects to foster human rights protection on local and European levels.
