A joint written statement of NGO assessment of the Draft UN Declaration on Human Rights Education and Training, of 39 co-signatory organisations, was submitted to the 16th session of the UN Human Rights Council (HRC).

Being mindful of the intensive process of finalising the draft text of the Declaration and the outcome of the Human Rights Council Working Group on the draft Declaration met from 10-14 January 2011, the NGOs assessed the draft UN Declaration in terms of: the principles of human rights education and training; the rights-based approach to human rights education and training and State responsibilities; access to human rights education and training; international and regional human rights mechanisms; and toward adoption and proclamation of the declaration.
