Human Rights Reading List

On the 10 December 2020, the world will celebrate Human Rights Day. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that everyone has the right to education. At, we believe that it's linked to having equal access to knowledge resources. For this reason, the Librarians have prepared a reading list on human rights and human rights education. The documents selected are available for free via the Library.
