Part of the Religion, Education and Values series
See all formats and editions

This book addresses the question of human rights education in a world that is witnessing a resurgence of religion in public life, and a continuation of religion across much of the globe, long after secularization theories predicted its decline.

Promoting a universal vision of human rights while acknowledging religious diversity is a challenge for schools.

This book starts with the basic premise that human rights are grounded in a belief in the dignity and ultimate worth of the human person.

Drawing on key philosophical and theological sources for understanding dignity, it builds a vision of human rights and religious education that seeks to square the impossible circle of universal human rights education in a religiously diverse world.
