Last week the Human Rights Council discussed the mid-term progress report of the Third Phase (2015-2019) of the World Programme for Human Rights Education. The Third Phase focuses on strengthening the implementation of the first two phases and promoting human rights training for media professionals and journalists.

Member states concluded that despite the progress made so far much remains to be done nationally and internationally to implement human rights education in all sectors.

The mid-term progress report and reports submitted by individual states can be found at the OHCHR website.
