The formative power of human rights: Civic education

Francisco Altarejos y Concepción Naval Durán


If we try to discover the educational power of Human Rights, attention should be paid to the value and meaning of Human Rights, to the reasons for and against them, to the possibility of their being enacted, and to their foundations. This discussion is the best way to build a plural civic education, viewed as moral education. This latter must necessarily be carried out relaying on social action in addition to school education.
