Tatiana Moskalkova opened All-Russian Human Rights Lesson

On December 3, High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova opened the All-Russian Uniform Lesson "HUMAN RIGHTS" and met with students of the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO).

This year, a large-scale educational project is dedicated to two important dates: the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the 25th anniversary of the Constitution of the Russian Federation.

Tatiana Moskalkova told students about the history of development, guarantees and methods of protecting human rights in the world and in Russia.

"If you do not know your rights, this means that you simply do not have them. If you know your rights, you can prevent their violation and fight for their respect. You are a new generation, which should have a worldview based on respect for human rights. It’s not enough just to know the list of these rights, it is necessary to understand where and how to apply them in a specific life situation. The main objective is not only to provide you with legal knowledge, and not only to teach how to act in a legal space, but to make sure that you want to live and act in justice, and, above all, to change the reality around you, to make life more honest," Tatiana Moskalkova said.

Finally, the High Commissioner awarded the laureates of the contest "Innovative technologies in legal education on the rights and freedoms of citizens, forms and methods of their protection".

During December, within the educational project "HUMAN RIGHTS" students are to meet with regional commissioners and representatives of the human rights community in all the constituent entities of the Russian Federation. In addition, seminars, contests, quizzes, festivals for children and many other full-time and distance interactive activities will be held.


All-Russian Uniform Human Rights Lesson was for the second time included in the Calendar of educational events on the proposal of the High Commissioner and on the decision of the Ministry of Education. In 2017, 28,000 schools, 6.5 million children, as well as 262,000 teachers participated in the Open Lesson.
