The European Wergeland Centre

The European Wergeland Centre (EWC) is a resource centre on education for intercultural understanding, human rights and democratic citizenship.

Their work builds on Council of Europe recommendations and policies, such as the Charter on Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights Education, which was developed to make sure that the values of human rights, democracy and the rule of law are promoted in and through education.

EWC’s main aim is to strengthen the capacity of individuals, educational institutions and educational systems to build and sustain a culture of democracy and human rights.
