About the Book :

Awareness of human rights both in their exercise and violation is an important factor in all areas of living today. It is, therefore, imperative to inculcate this awareness at the high school stage itself. The focus of human rights education is on 'norms' and 'values' as well as the 'skills' to attain them. The present research work aims to teach human rights concepts with a view of enriching the cognitive, affective and psycho-motor domains of students and learners. Finally, it will help to assess the impact of the approaches and strategies applied as well as the attitudinal changes observed. This book would be of immense value to young and old alike in addition to the average layman.
