Chapter Summary

The purpose of this chapter is twofold. It will firstly look at the United Nations Decade for Human Rights Education and what the Netherlands has done in response to the Plan of Action. It will examine whether the Netherlands Government has fulfilled its responsibilities as set out under the Plan of Action, or if they are fulfilling their responsibilities towards human rights education indirectly. The chapter examines some of the main barriers inhibiting the success of the Decade and discusses whether the Netherlands should support the call for a second Decade. The objectives espoused under the United Nations Decade for Human Rights Education should be given full international support and attention until the end goal of the Decade is achieved, which is to collate and distribute a comprehensive collection of human rights education materials throughout all member states and secure effective national capacities for human rights education worldwide.
