Human Rights and Digital Transformation
Challenges for Education
17 May 2019
Digitization and the digital transformation have penetrated almost all societies and generations today and have already led to disruptions in many areas. This means not only new challenges for education and human rights, but also exciting opportunities that should be included in the human rights education debate. Within this framework, the Centre for Human Rights Education (ZMRB) of the University of Teacher Education (PH Luzern) is planning the 12th International Human Rights Forum Lucerne (IHRF) 2019 on the topic "Human Rights and Digital Transformation - Challenges for Education" on 17 May 2019.
The 12th IHRF 2019 focuses on the following three main topics and the associated questions:
- Digital Skills: What are digital skills and what role do they play in the digital transformation of education, including respect for human rights?
- Digital Human Rights: What are Digital Human Rights and how or what do they protect?
- Right to education: What (new) elements does the right to education include in the digital age?
The programme for the 12th IHRF 2019 will be announced at the end of January 2019. Registration will also start at the end of January 2019.
Interested parties can also contact us now at ihrf @ phlu.ch.
Further information is also regularly published on the ZMRB blog.
We are already looking forward to meeting you in Lucerne!
