Baltic partners meet in Riga to discuss cooperation

On 4-5 November, the BHRS organised a meeting with Baltic collaboration partners in Riga — the Estonian Human Rights Centre, the NGO Rights Institute (Lithuania) and Human Rights Voice (Lithuania), in order to jointly assess outcomes of implementing the OKAT Knowledge Assessment Tool.

The knowledge assessment tool and the first human rights tests placed therein are already freely accessible online to any interested person. The aim of the tool is to provide an opportunity to a user of the Human Rights Guide to assess the knowledge they have gained regarding human rights. In the near future, OKAT will be supplemented by new publicly available human rights tests and will also be offered to institutional partners which implement human rights educational programmes.

The project is being implemented in cooperation with the Baltic partners and with the support of the Nordplus Adult Education Programme. 

In September 2019, the implementation of the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership Project “Innovative and sustainable human rights education — road to responsible and integrated society and good governance” was commenced. The BHRS is cooperating with above mentioned Baltic partners within the framework of this project, as well as the Bulgarian Helsinki Committee. Issues concerning the commencement of this strategic cooperation were discussed during the meeting in Riga.
