Resources and books

Amnesty has been supporting human rights education for over 25 years. We've reached tens of thousands of students in the UK. We provide teacher training and as our resources by theme page shows, a huge range of resources to support teaching across different ages and subjects.

Written by specialist advisors, they encourage engaged classroom discussions about human rights. Key teaching materials include important themes of the day, and offer creative approaches to understanding truth, freedom and justice.
