Abstract

After a brief review of human rights theoretical perspectives according to the prevailing conceptions of state, the author presents three understandings of democracy: deliberative democracy, communicative democracy and democracy as human rights. From this framework, and taking into account the place of justice and rights in education, the author addresses a critical perspective of human rights education and its implications for conceptions of school, school culture, curriculum, learning, committed to emancipatory democracy.
