The European Foundation of Human Rights has produced the Lithuanian edition of the education pack “Rights and Freedoms in Practice” (“Teisės ir laisvės praktikoje“), which lavishly illustrates the European Convention on Human Rights and exquisitely depicts the function of the European Court of Human Rights.
After the long-lasting process of translating and drawing up, the Foundation received 4000 printed volumes for distribution, part of which will be delivered to the biggest Lithuanian organizations dealing with protection of human rights, namely: The Lithuanian Human Rights Association (“Lietuvos žmogaus teisių asociacija”), Center for Equality Advancement (“Lygių galimybių plėtros centras”), an organization called “Save the Children Lithuania” (“Gelbėkit Vaikus”), Associations for the Disabled in Lithuania (“Lietuvos neįgaliųjų draugija”), Women’s Issues Information Centre (“Moterų informacijos centras”), House of Diversity and Education (“Įvairovės ir edukacijos namai”), National Institute for Social Integration (“Nacionalinis socialinės integracijos institutas”) and Human Rights Monitoring Institute (“Žmogaus teisių stebėjimo institutas”).
The remaining volumes are going to be delivered to educational institutions in Lithuania.
The very first recipients of our education pack were the participants of training courses organized by the Foundation (more info at: http://www.efhr.eu/2012/10/02/take-part-in-free-training-courses/?lang=en).
We are convinced that the Lithuanian edition of the education pack will be useful for the Lithuanian reading public who is interested in the subject of protection of human rights as well as for a lot of other people.
