Abstract:

The article discusses the challenges facing human rights education in Burma, in the face of the restriction placed on it by the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) the country’s ruling junta. The challenges faced by human rights education are divided into five categories, including security, discourse, resources, cultural and religious norms and poverty and limited literacy. The paper also considers successful strategies that non-formal educators employ to overcome challenges, focusing on the efforts of the Human Rights Education Institute of Burma (HREIB), a nongovernmental organization (NGO) that has been working on HRE in Burma for the past 10 years.
