The use of informal educative methods (i.e. the use of learners’ social
experience and media such as television and films) is thought to help
students to explore and understand key concepts of human rights by
rooting them in their everyday lives an thus helping them achieve a
deep holistic understanding of the topic.
This booklet aims to highlight good practice in using informal
educative methods in teaching human rights and to make
recommendations based upon these methods and ultimately, it is
hoped, promote the use of such methods when teaching and
discussing human rights.
In the first chapter we will define informal education and relate it to
the concept of human rights. In the second chapter we describe
eleven examples of informal education methods, in order to illustrate
some good practices. Finally we offer conclusions and
recommendations to give guidance to regular self-evaluation of the
quality and intensity in education on human and children’s rights.
