This paper focuses on an experience of a training course about Global Education: The Human Rights Dimension, offered by the North South Centre and The Network University in 2010-2011. The course was targeted at practitioners in the field of education and development, teachers, social and youth workers, as well as policy-makers, civil servants and local and regional authorities. It consisted of 4 modules including Global Education and Human Rights Education concepts, strategies for action and Human Rights Education activities.
