CR&DALL Themes: 

Human Rights Education in Scotland: Challenges and opportunities

Working Paper: 

WP601/2019

The right to education has become an increasingly visible feature of international educational policy debates and a foundation for state education policy itself over the last three decades. The emergence of Human Rights Education (HRE) as both a concept and an educational programme in its own right has been seen as a central condition for the realisation of the right to education. Successive Scottish Governments have expressed a commitment to the promotion of a society that is inclusive and respects, and realises, the rights of all people.

CR&DALL Themes: 

New Book Resisting Neoliberalism in Education Local, National and Transnational Perspectives Edited by Lyn Tett and Mary Hamilton

Neoliberalism has been widely criticised because of its role in prioritising ‘free markets’ as the optimum way of solving problems and organising society. In the field of education, this leads to an emphasis on the knowledge economy that can reduce both persons and education to economic actors and be detrimental to wider social and ethical goals.

CR&DALL Themes:

We are delighted to highlight the PhD research at the University of Glasgow of Nicola Dickson who seeks to explore the use of arts-informed adult learning with young women who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse and sexual violence. She is interested in how engagement with arts-informed adult learning might impact on the perceived recovery journey of women who access a Glasgow-based charity for survivors of sexual abuse and homelessness.
