All-Russian Open Lesson "HUMAN RIGHTS"

December 1, at MGIMO University, High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova held the All-Russian Open Lesson on human rights for 700 schoolchildren.

During the lesson, the High Commissioner spoke about the types of human rights, the history of the ombudsperson’s institute in the Russian Federation, the main activities of the state human rights defender, cooperation with human rights organizations, historical documents that established human and civil rights and freedoms, and shared practical experience and information about the most resonant cases.

"Today, activities in the framework of the Unified Lesson «Human Rights» take place in many Russian schools… On the eve of December 10, the International Human Rights Day, I, as the federal Commissioner, took the initiative of holding lessons and extracurricular activities devoted to the issue of human rights in all the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, in all educational institutions, so that all citizens knew their rights and respected the rights of others," Tatiana Moskalkova said to the schoolchildren.

"Rights are based on traditions and moral values. The most important rights are the right to life, the right to freedom, and the right to dignity. Violations of these rights of citizens can not and should not remain unpunished," the High Commissioner added.

At the end of the lecture, the state human rights defender gave detailed answers to the questions of the schoolchildren, which touched upon acute social and legal problems.

The All-Russian Open Lesson has launched the educational project «HUMAN RIGHTS», which was developed under the auspices of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation.

The main goal of the project is to increase the level of legal literacy among citizens, since there is still no single educational program for studying human rights and freedoms and ways to protect them.

The initiative of the High Commissioner was also supported by regional ombudspersons and representatives of the leading universities throughout the country.
