The Facilitation Team

The Facilitation Team is the national team supporting and coordinating the Human Rights in Education Initiative. The team is responsible for articulating the ‘Core’ of the Initiative (overall aims, principles and guidelines), mediating conflicts, suggesting project goals, and generally providing a forum for the adjudication of issues of concern to the overall Initiative.

Members are appointed by the Director, who is accountable to the Human Rights in Education Trustees for developing and implementing the national Human Rights in Education strategy.
