Human Rights and Community-led Development

Ben Cislaghi

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter analyses community members’ experiences during and after the programme. It uncovers a shift in participants’ attitudes, knowledge, intentions, and behaviour. The chapter also provides evidence of how human rights education contributed to empowering the rural community as a whole. It looks at how the new knowledge about human rights expanded participants’ capabilities, especially as they created new social norms and abandoned ones that they found hindered their growth and development.

Keywords:   Human Rights Education, Human development praxis, Social norms change, Transformative education, Pedagogy of the oppressed, Conciliatory transformation, Community empowerment, Child Protection
