Human Rights Squares

Overview and Procedure

These activities reveal what participants already know about human rights and the issues that are of concern to them. It also stimulates discussion about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and categories of rights. Originally adapted from David Shiman, Teaching Human Rights, (Denver: Center for Teaching International Relations Publication, U of Denver, 1993) 2-3, we are continually accepting and adding new adaptations as they are submitted for new topic areas. PDF versions are available for easier printing.
