SCHOOL OF INTEGRATED HUMAN RIGHTS
Human Rights education is about responsibility in creating and reclaiming sustainable development. The promotion of human rights, responsibility and sustainable development are the pillars of the education. Integrated Human Rights Education will facilitate the capacity of migrants to develop their own analysis on migrant rights, transnational responsibilities and sustainable development.
