Felisa Tibbitts, of Human Rights Education Associates, and Ed Gragert, of the International Educational Resource Network (iEARN), examine the relationship of Human Rights Education and Global Competency. Sixty years ago, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. As the world has become more integrated, human rights have become increasingly helpful as a moral compass to guide global competency. The discussants address a variety of approaches to human rights education, what is known and not known about their effects, and the implementation challenges to universalizing Human Rights Education. Fernando Reimers, Ford Foundation Professor of International Education and Director International Education Policy Program provides the introduction and moderation for this forum.
