Abstract

In Mexico human rights education and training programmes are becoming one of the most recurrent outcomes of the official settlements regarding institutional violations and abuses of human rights. Despite their predominant role in addressing human rights violations there is little systematic information on how these programmes are conducted in practice. To fill this gap, the paper presents a cross-case analysis of three qualitative case studies that explore practitioners’ professional knowledge and practices in implementing human rights education programmes in Mexico. Each individual case examines some of the challenges practitioners face in the implementation of these programmes, the institutional influence on their work, and the role of their own experiences in human rights their practices. The findings of this analysis show how practitioners develop their own professional knowledge through the implementation educational and training programmes and how they make sense of human rights from their teaching practices.
