Human rights awareness is on the radar of most psychologists. However, there is still a lot of room for improvement.

Human rights awareness is on the radar of most psychologists. However, there is still a lot of room for improvement. With that in mind, this expert meeting on Human Rights Education for Psychologists, was jointly held by the European Federation of Psychologists Association (EFPA), the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) and the European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation (EIUC) in October of 2016, as a step towards the development of a structured and integrated training and learning programme on human rights for psychologists.

A structured human rights education curriculum may guide psychologists in applying a human rights approach to their professional conduct, ethical codes and scientific practices. To achieve these key competences and skills for psychologists to become better human rights defenders and promoters within their professional setting were identified in the framework of this meeting.
