Chapter Summary

Article 26 of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights specifically recognises the importance of education in strengthening respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. The existence, preservation and teaching of human rights are not things that can simply be taken for granted. Educating the next generation is vital to ensure that the rights we have developed will be maintained and developed for all times. Case Studies on Knowledge About the Work of the United Nations. Events of the 20th Century and the early part of this new millennium have demonstrated that the study of Human Rights can only be defined as "the study of what rights-and duties-citizens are entitled to, and how to ensure respect for those rights". The important item is to adopt systems that would enable education projects to reach even the most remote communities.

Keywords: case studies; education project; fundamental freedoms; human rights; remote community; United Nations
