Chapter I analyzes the 1974 Unesco Recommendation concerning education for international understanding. Chapters ii and iii provide an historical review of international education and a description of Unesco and United Nations human rights instruments. An overview of international systems for the protection of human rights is presented in Chapter iv. Chapter v focuses on the United States and human rights, followed by a review of research findings concerning students' international knowledge and attitudes in Chapter vi. Chapter vii provides a critical survey of selected curriculum materials dealing with international human rights and international education. The conclusions reached during the course of the study, presented in Chapter viii, include recommendations for further research, teacher preparation with an intercultural dimension, improved instructional materials, and a more concerted effort to launch international human rights education.
