ARMED CONFLICT: Engaging non-state armed groups through human rights education: Reflections and lessons learned

The report discusses the experiences, reflections and lessons learned by civil society organisations who are engaging non-state armed groups in Burma, Indonesia, and the Philippines through human rights education. It defines human rights education as a continuous process of transformation that involves the sharing of knowledge and skills, training and education that promotes the institutionalisation of rights within the organisational structures, policies, and practices of non-state armed group.

The report proposes the conduct of human rights education as a viable measure to promote and ensure respect of child rights standards among NSAGS, and serve as a catalyst towards changes in policies and practices of non-state armed groups. The report contains guidelines and tools that can help civil society groups develop, implement and evaluate human rights education programs involving non-state armed groups.
