Round table on effectiveness of teaching "Human Rights" discipline in educational organizations

On October 18, a round table on the effectiveness of teaching human rights in educational organizations was held at the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation.

The event was attended by members of federal authorities and international organizations, Commissioners for Human Rights in the constituent entities of the Russian Federation and representatives of leading universities of the country.

«An analysis of complaints coming to the High Commissioner and polling data show that citizens are not sufficiently aware of their rights and how to protect them," Tatiana Moskalkova said.

She said that on the eve of the round table, the Office of the High Commissioner conducted a survey of students from several Moscow universities. According to the federal ombudsman, 426 students took part in the survey. As a result, most of them noted that they found themselves in situations where they faced a lack of knowledge about their rights. This answer was given by 79% of students of legal specialties and 83% of students in other areas of training.

Tatiana Moskalkova noted that she considers it necessary to develop a concept of legal education and human rights education within the country.
