Education systems that promote respect for the rule of law in adherence with international human rights and fundamental freedoms can help empower young people. Education, with teachers at the core, has a key role in nurturing future generations to become champions of peace and justice. This handbook is intended for teachers and teacher trainers in formal school settings at the secondary school level. It aims to provide teachers with relevant and accessible educational resources that aim to support the development of youth who are critically informed, socially connected, and ethically responsible and engaged. It may also be of interest to professionals working in non-formal education settings or other sectors – namely the justice, social and health sectors – working with secondary level students. Empowering students for just societies: A handbook for secondary school teachers was developed in the context of the UNESCO/UNODC partnership on Global Citizenship Education for the Rule of Law: Doing the right thing.
