PREFACE
The International Congress on the Teaching of Human Rights, organized by UNESCO in
Vienna, Austria, in 1978, recommended that the Organization should be a clearing-house for
information concerning human rights teaching and research. Nine years later, the International
Congress on Human Rights Teaching, Information and Documentation (Malta, 1987) confirmed
this recommendation and concluded that UNESCO should provide information on materials,
specialized institutions and bibliographies related to human rights teaching and research.
This led to the preparation of the first edition of the World Directory of Human Rights
Research and Training Institutions which was published in 1987 in collaboration with the Canadian
Human Rights Foundation. The Directory was considered to be a useful means of enhancing
cooperation among the institutions working for the advancement of human rights through education
and research. It was therefore decided to publish the Directory on a regular basis.
Increasingly, the importance of training, research and the dissemination of information in
the field of human rights was acknowledged. This led to a call by the International Congress on
Education for Human Rights and Democracy (Montreal, 1993) for "identification, creation and
strengthening of national, regional and international research centres and clearing-houses on human
rights information". That same year, the World Conference on Human Rights in Vienna considered
that "human rights education, training and public information are essential for the promotion and
achievement of stable and harmonious relations among communities and for fostering mutual
understanding, tolerance and peace" (Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action, Part II, para.
78).
The present edition of the Directory, containing updated and revised information, is
dedicated to the tenth anniversary of the World Conference on Human Rights. The Vienna
Declaration and Programme of Action underlines the universality, indivisibility, interdependence
and interrelation of all human rights – civil, cultural, economic, political and social. It proclaims
that "the international community must treat human rights globally, in a fair and equal manner, on
the same footing, and with the same emphasis. While the significance of national and regional
particularities and various historical, cultural and religious backgrounds must be borne in mind, it is
the duty of States, regardless of their political, economic and cultural systems, to promote and
protect all human rights and fundamental freedoms" (Part I, para.5).
The recent developments in the field of human rights have confirmed the necessity for a
stronger partnership among all those who are working for the advancement of human rights,
especially in order to meet new challenges and threats to human rights, such as poverty, terrorism,
deterioration of the environment, etc. It is in this spirit that we propose this sixth edition of the
World Directory.
UNESCO considers that human rights research and training institutions are important and
reliable partners in the implementation of its programmes. The Organization cooperates closely
with its partners within the United Nations system, first and foremost with the Office of the United
Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) with which a Memorandum of
Understanding was signed in February 2003. According to the Memorandum, OHCHR and
UNESCO are committed to join efforts in the realization of activities in the field of human rights
and democracy, in particular those aimed at the implementation of the Vienna Declaration and
Programme of Action (1993), the Plan of Action for the United Nations Decade for Human Rights
Education (1995-2004); the Declaration and Plan of Action of the World Conference Against
Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance (2001); the UN Millennium
Declaration and the Dakar Framework for Action adopted by the World Education Forum in 2000.
UNESCO and OHCHR are also resolved to cooperate in planning and implementing specific
activities linked with human rights education, and research.
It should be recalled that the final report of the United Nations High Commissioner for
Human Rights on the implementation of the Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action
(document A/53/372 of 11 September 1998) states that provisions concerning human rights

v
education and public information, will, over the coming years, require stronger involvement on the
part of the international community and strengthening of the partnerships between governmental
and non-governmental actors and between all those who work for human rights. It is imperative that
the importance of human rights education and public information as major investments towards a
just and peaceful society be fully understood and valued. Ultimately, the effective promotion and
protection of all human rights for all people is not possible without a global human rights culture.
Education and information are major tools to create such a culture.
This edition of the World Directory was prepared, as were the previous ones, by the Social
and Human Sciences Documentation Centre and the Division of Human Rights. It was done with
the hope that the publication will contribute to further strengthen collaboration between human
rights institutions and increase their contribution to the advancement of human rights. It should
facilitate the creation of networks of research and training institutions in order to work for further
progress in the field of human rights, promoting the right to human rights education as a human
right and as an integral part of education. We are grateful to the institutions who assisted in
preparing this edition.
Despite all our efforts, the information contained in this publication may not be exhaustive
and some omissions and errors may still appear. We would be grateful for any suggestions for
improvement, modifications, or further data. This should be sent to the following address (the
questionnaire used for the survey is available at the end of the Directory):
