The Bingham Centre is a member of the Association for Citizenship Teaching (ACT). This article was published in its Summer 2017 journal.
ACT is the key thoughtleader in the Citizenship Education space and has been centrally involved in the development of the subject in England. Part of this thoughtleadership involves providing insightful articles on matters of relevance to ACT members. The Centre has engaged with citizenship teachers through communications, events and ACT conferences over the last five years. This is the second of two articles that have featured in the ACT journal. In this article Michael Abiodun Olatokun discusses the important role that human rights education programmes play in equipping students with the skills, knowledge and confidence to be rule of law advocates.
