Manual on the wearing of religious symbols in public areas by Malcolm D Evans( )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This manual explores how the European Convention on Human Rights relates to the freedom of thought, conscience and religion. It identifies the key concepts which can be found in the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights and examines the role and responsibilities of both state and citizen. The central issue addressed is the wearing of religious symbols in public areas. For this purpose, the author first looks at a number of topics, including the 'visibility' of religions and beliefs in the public sphere, and the notion of 'wearing religious symbols'. The questions policy makers need to ask when addressing issues concerning the wearing of religious symbols are then listed. Finally, the manual seeks to apply these principles and approaches to a number of key areas such as state employment, schools and universities, the private sector and the criminal justice system.--Publisher's description

The best interests of the child : a dialogue between theory and practice by Council of Europe( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The concept of the best interests of child, as stated in Article 3.1 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, has caused many controversies and debates amongst policy makers, experts and practitioners. Although central to a child's full enjoyment of his or her rights, the meaning of the concept in practice and how it should be interpreted and applied, is still part of today's debate. The Belgian Authorities and the Council of Europe organised on 9 and 10 December 2014 a conference on 'The best interests of the child - A dialogue between theory and practice' to provide an opportunity for actors involved in decisions that have an impact on children's lives to share knowledge and enhance the understanding of the concept of the child's best interest. Featuring in this publication are the 21 different viewpoints presented during the conference on the concept of the best interests of the child. They are divided into four chapters namely those presenting general reflections of the concept; assessing, determining and monitoring best interests; using the concept in different environments; and understanding the concept in family affairs"--Back cover
Signposts : policy and practice for teaching about religions and non-religious world views in intercultural education by Council of Europe( )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can the study of religions and non-religious world views contribute to intercultural education in schools in Europe? An important recommendation from the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe (Recommendation CM/Rec(2008)12 on the dimension of religions and non-religious convictions within intercultural education) aimed to explain the nature and objectives of this form of education. Signposts goes much further by providing advice to policy makers, schools (including teachers, senior managers and governors) and teacher trainers on tackling issues arising from the recommendation. Taking careful account of feedback from education officials, teachers and teacher trainers in Council of Europe member states, Signposts gives advice, for example, on clarifying the terms used in this form of education; developing competences for teaching and learning, and working with different didactical approaches; creating "safe space" for moderated student-to-student dialogue in the classroom; helping students to analyse media representations of religions; discussing non-religious world views alongside religious perspectives; handling human rights issues relating to religion and belief; and linking schools (including schools of different types) to one another and to wider communities and organisations. Signposts is not a curriculum or a policy statement. It aims to give policy makers, schools and teacher trainers in the Council of Europe member states, as well as others who wish to use it, the tools to work through the issues arising from interpretation of the recommendation to meet the needs of individual countries. Signposts results from the work of an international panel of experts convened jointly by the Council of Europe and the European Wergeland Centre, and is written on the group's behalf by Professor Robert Jackson. -- Council of Europe
