Event Description
Human Rights Education: Mapping the Field
Monisha Bajaj, University of San Francisco
In this talk, Monisha Bajaj discusses the field of human rights education (HRE)--its origins, development and currents trends in research and practice. She will provide information about the rise of the field and how it has gained popularity while also tracing different perspectives on what constitutes valid human rights education scholarship.  Dr. Bajaj will also highlight insights and lessons from her new book Human Rights Education: Theory, Research, Praxis that seeks to be a foundational textbook for students and scholars of HRE. 
Monisha Bajaj is Professor and Chair of International and Multicultural Education at the University of San Francisco. Dr. Bajaj is the editor and author of six books, including, most recently, Human Rights Education: Theory, Research, Praxis (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2017), as well as numerous articles. She has also developed curriculum—particularly related to peace education, human rights, anti-bullying efforts and sustainability—for non-profit organizations and inter-governmental organizations, such as UNICEF and UNESCO. 
The event will be streamed online at youtube.com/watch?v=J-RSJImCVE4
