Empowering young people and scholars to contribute towards sustainable development in society is one of the main challenges facing contemporary education.
In order for young academics to apply their knowledge and skills correctly and within the context of governance and human rights, innovative and creative curricula designs, study environment and teaching methods are required by all training and learning agencies.

Ideas, suggestions and best practice projects will be shared by:
-Frank Elbers, Director of the Human Rights Education Associates, Boston
-Paul Martin, Founder of the Human Rights Master and advocacy programme at Columbia University, New York
-Anja Mihr, Professor at the Netherlands Institute of Human Rights, Utrecht;
-Rosette Muzigo-Morrison, Lawyer and register for the Rwanda Tribunal, The Hague

Participants from professional governmental and non-governmental as well as academic fields in human rights and governance are welcome to actively contribute to the round-table discussion.
