New Training Module – Human Rights and Accountability

Education in Emergencies used to be the forgotten dimension in emergency work as the immediate reaction was to deal with more structural dimensions of an emergency such as health,  food , water and shelter. The work of INEE has changed all that and provided emergency teams with a comprehensive package of guidance ,developed by practitioners in the field.

INEE and the Global Education Cluster have added a new training module on Human Rights and Accountability to the Education in Emergencies harmonized training package.


The Human Rights and Accountability Training Module complements the rest of the training package by creating awareness around human rights and serving as a tool to achieve quality education and a life of dignity. The module includes a Powerpoint presentation, handouts, interactive dialogue sections and exercises to guide participants through the various steps of using Human Rights in their education work. Learning points include good practices to support rights-holders, as well as how to identify key duty-bearers and lines of accountability available to affected populations and education actors.


The module was developed for INEE and the IASC Education Cluster by Peter Hyll-Larsen andActionAid International – The Right to Education Project, in consultation with members of the Education Cluster Working Group and the INEE Working Group on Minimum Standards and INEE Tools. The Right to Education Project aims to promote social mobilisation and legal accountability by focusing on the legal challenges to the right to education.
