Abstract [es]

Los derechos humanos, como están formulados en la Declaración de la ONU de 1948, se han convertido en una lingua franca. Hemos sido testigos, en el período de la postguerra, de una denominada Revolución de los Derechos Humanos con una gran cantidad de declaraciones y convenciones relacionadas con grupos vul-nerables como niños, mujeres, pueblos originarios, discapacitados. Se han intro-ducido poderosos mecanismos para la implementación de los derechos humanos, por ejemplo la Corte Europea de Derechos Humanos en Estrasburgo y la Corte Internacional de crímenes de la Haya. No obstante esta revolución en el área de los derechos humanos y la educación sobre los mismos ha quedado rezagada. Ha sido solamente en la última década que se han realizado intentos serios de incluir los derechos humanos en el curriculum y en diversas asignaturas en las escuelas de varios países alrededor del mundo. El mismo fenómeno puede ser apreciado en muchas universidades. Este artículo intenta analizar este silencio de la educa-ción en derechos humanos desde una perspectiva global y comprender por qué el proceso de formulación e implementación de esta educación ha sido tan lento. Otro tema que se plantea es cómo la educación de derechos humanos puede ser definida y practicada especialmente en distintos niveles de la escuela.

Abstract [en]

Human Rights as they are formulated in the UN Declaration of Human Rights from 1948 have become a moral lingua franca. We have also witnessed a so called Human Rights Revolution in the post war period with more declarations and conventions concerning vulnerable groups such as children, women, indigenous populations and disabled people. Stronger mechanisms for implementations such as Human Rights Courts (for example the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg) and the International Criminal Court in Hague have been introduced. In spite of this “Human Rights Revolution” the education –both at school and university level– concerning human rights have lagged behind. It is only in the later decade that serious attempts have been made to introduce hu-man rights in curriculums and in various subjects in the schools in several coun-tries around the world. The same phenomenon applies to many universities. This article tries to analyze this standing of human rights education from a global perspective and understand why the processes of formulating and implementing such an education have been so slow. A further question that will be raised is how a human rights education can be defined and practiced especially at various levels in school.
