NGO review on COE Charter on Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights - questoinnaire

The Council of Europe Charter on Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights Education, adopted in 2010, is an essential document outlining the standards and principles for citizenship and human rights education. The Council of Europe reviews the level of implementation of the Charter in member states every 5 years in order to support reflection and evaluation, identify and share good practices, develop new policies and support measures. A new cycle was initiated in 2016 by both Education and Youth Departments of the Council of Europe and its results will be finalised and made available in 2017.

This questionnaire is part of the review conducted with non-governmental organisations by the Youth Department.  It is addressed to representatives of youth organisations (formally recognised and informal groups) and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) working on human rights education and education for democratic citizenship at local, national and international level.

Needless to say that without your contribution it will not be possible to have accurate information on the situation in member states and to create together policies and programmes that ensure access to human rights education for everyone.
We count on you to complete the questionnaire and to spread it among your networks and partners,

DEADLINE:  June 15th 

The questionnaires are available in :
