Around the world there are a myriad of NGOs using human rights education (HRE) as a tool of community empowerment with the firm belief that it will help people improve their lives. One way of understanding these processes is that they translate universal human rights speak using messages and symbols which make them relevant to people’s daily lives and culturally resonant. However, an alternative more radical perspective is that these processes should engage individuals in modes of critical inquiry into the ways that that existing power structures maintain the status quo and control not only how we understand and speak about social inequality and injustice, but also act on it. This book is a critical inquiry into the production, distribution and consumption of HRE and how the discourse is constructed historically, socially and politically through global institutions and local NGO practice. The book begins with the premise that HRE is composed of theories of human rights and education, both of which are complex and multifaceted. However, the book demonstrates how over time a dominant discourse of HRE, constructed by the United Nations institutional framework, has come to prominence and the ways it is reproduced and reinforced through the practice of intermediary NGOs engaged in HRE activities with community groups. Drawing on socio-legal scholarship it offers a new theoretical and political framework for addressing how human rights, pedagogy, knowledge and power can be analysed between the global and local by connecting the critical, but well-trodden, theories of human rights to insights on critical pedagogy. It uses critical discourse analysis and ethnographic research to investigate the practice of NGOs engaged in HRE using contextual evidence and findings from fieldwork with NGOs and communities in Tanzania.

Insights into Education presents the educational philosophy of J. Krishnamurti in an easy to use, topic-based format. It is a practical handbook that comes alive when used as an introduction to group investigation and dialogue. What it offers to teachers everywhere is an inroad into the many matters of concern with which they are faced on a daily basis. That we cannot continue as we have been doing, with rote-learning, fact-finding, and a modicum of analysis as the building blocks of education, is obvious to anyone who is at all concerned with teaching and learning in a world with accelerating technological advancement, alienation, and despair. It is these very issues that are tackled here, sometimes implicitly but always at depth. What Krishnamurti proposes, and here discloses, is a different approach to learning altogether, one that distinguishes itself radically from what we normally understand by that term: the accumulation of knowledge, with its application and testing. By narrowing down our understanding to the pragmatic and the measurable, we forfeit the opportunity to probe deeply and to awaken intelligence in our students and in ourselves. What is meant by intelligence in this context is not the capacity to memorize and measure, but that subtler ability to see the whole which comes alive in a human being when he/she sees the limits of the measurable. To awaken this intelligence is the goal of education. When KrishnamurtiÕs Notebook first became available in 1976, it was soon realized that it was a spiritually unique document giving his perceptions and experiences and describing his states of consciousness. It is a kind of diary but one that is little concerned with the day to day process of living, though very much aware of the natural world.

Dear Readers, To educate the complete child, teaching and learning must encompass all aspects of student development. How do experts from many disciplines collaborate and combine their skills and abilities to meet the developmental requirements of students? What attitudes and ideas are required to effectively collaborate in order to build healthy educational settings for children? Who has responsibility for the collaborative process, and who intervenes when it fails? There is room for everyone to excel intellectually if they are given the correct education from the beginning. "The function of education is to teach one to think deeply and critically." True education aims to develop intelligence as well as character. The importance of cooperation and coordination in problem resolution and transformation in classrooms, schools, and school-community systems is emphasised. What exactly is 'Education'? What is its principal function, and what is it not? Which techniques support it, and at what cognitive levels? So many fundamental issues that many of our "trained teachers," among others, raise. And there are few forums where they may debate the few replies they have found so far. As a result, there was a perceived need for a book of this type, containing basic principles and introductions to many pertinent theories. I hope that the book will be a useful resource for student-teachers, teachers, teacher-educators, and all stakeholders in our country's educational institutions.

Alphabetically arranged like a dictionary under 118 different subject headings, this invaluable reference book helps one to find out quickly what Krishnamurti has said on important subjects such as Awareness, Concentration, Fear, Happiness, Love, Meditation, etc. At the end of every quotation a statement is given indicating its source. In this way the interested reader is assisted not only to check the authenticity of a quotation but also its context.

Against the Nation invites readers to explore South Asia as a place and as an idea with a sense of reflection and nuance rather than submitting to conventional understanding of the region merely in geopolitical terms. The authors take the readers across a vast terrain of prospects like visual culture, music, film, knowledge systems and classrooms, myth and history as well as forms of politics that offer possibilities for reading South Asia as a collective enterprise that has historical precedents as well as untapped ideological potential for the future.

This book examines the concepts of the Anthropocene and globalisation in our society and the changes that these are bringing about in education and human learning. The book argues that there needs to be reflexive approach to issues that affect the fate of the planet and the future of humans, brought about by an education that looks to the future. Wulf argues that a change in education and socialization can only succeed based on an understanding of previous educational ideas, and considers the significance of Confucianism and spiritual education that emerged in the East. The book traces key educational ideas throughout history to show how education and human knowledge are closely linked, highlighting the need for us to pay careful attention to repetition, mimesis and the imagination in learning. It shows how a future-oriented education must engage with issues of peace and violence, global citizenship and sustainable development. This timely and compelling book will be of great interest to researchers, academics and students in the fields of philosophy of education, the history and anthropology of education, sustainability education and global citizenship education

There comes a point in life when our soul hangs in the balance – saddened, desperate, and foreign to the person we’ve become. The life we once romanticized seems shattered and we’re left wondering what to do. Rebuilding Broken traces the author’s difficult journey from complete ruin and painful realization to a state of fulfillment and salvation. Along the way, MD emphasizes the power of spirituality outside the structure of organized religion as well as the importance of rediscovering the soul in a world which defines us, breaks us, and defines us again.
