Human Rights Education in Turkmenistan



Recently, Human Rights Education has drawn much attention in Turkmenistan, a Central Asian country.

In Ashgabat, the capital of Turkmenistan, there was a large forum on human rights that started on December 3rd and ended on the 6th of 2013. Educators who attended the lectures had the opportunity to learn about different ways to promote universal values and how to teach students about human rights. The forum was held as a part of a larger project called “Strengthening the national potential of Turkmenistan to promote and protect human rights.”

With its recent lecture series in early December, the “Strengthening the national potential of Turkmenistan to promote and protect human rights” project has already have held 47 lectures, including seminars and workshops. Moreover, brochures and booklets have been created and distributed during international conferences or other occasions to highlight Turkmenistan's project.

The first series of this project, managed and sponsored by the National Institute for Democracy and Human Rights under the President of Turkmenistan, the UN Development Programme in Turkmenistan, and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), started in 2006 for the purpose of Turkmenistan development. With visits from the United Nations Secretary General in 2002 and the Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights in 2003, followed by an evaluation by the OHCHR in 2004, the project for building reporting capacities was launched. In 2009, a three year project sponsored by the European Union put more focus on human rights, leading to the 2013-14 goal of promoting and protecting human rights in the Central Asian nation.

This project for the improvement of human rights is expected to grow year after year and continue to have a positive impact on the nation and its people.
