This chapter looks at education and human rights culture in conflict-affected societies, using Northern Ireland as a case study. It explores the relationship between the separate yet interrelated discourses around children's rights and human rights education. It considers the contribution of the effective implementation of children's rights and human rights education on the developments of a human rights culture in a society. The Northern Ireland experience suggests that a co-ordinated approach that harnesses the normative and enforcing capacity of law and the persuasive potential of education is the most strategic means by which to establish and sustain a human rights culture in conflict-affected societies.

Keywords:   education, human rights culture, Northern Ireland, children's rights, human rights education
