Education

The CEC Human Rights Manual is written specifically for churches that want to strengthen commitment, and to involve more people in the promotion of human rights through training. It draws on the wealth of experience and knowledge accumulated by churches of different confessions and context from all over Europe. It is also published in Serbian.
