Higher Education and Democratic Culture: Citizenship, Human Rights and
Civic Responsibility (Council of Europe higher education series No.8)

This book on the responsibility of higher education for a democratic
culture is the 8th volume in the Council of Europe's Higher Education
series. It is the direct result of a Higher Education Forum held in June
2006 on the responsibility of higher education for citizenship, human
rights and sustainability. This forum was a part of the Council of
Europe's long-standing commitment to work in the area of education for
democratic citizenship and human rights. It complements earlier work on
the public responsibility for higher education and research which led to
a recommendation of the Committee of Minister to the member states of
the Council of Europe in 2007. If our aim is to work for sustainable
democratic societies, the responsibility of public authorities for a
high-quality higher education system must go hand in hand with the
responsibility of higher education institutions towards the advancement
of society.

Roma in Europe (21/01/2008)

In Europe the Roma form a community of some 8 million souls. They are a
misunderstood people, isolated from the world by the negative
stereotypes that surround them; for centuries, policies devised to deal
with them have been aimed at their physical or cultural destruction.
This book is intended to foster a better understanding of the Roma by
describing, on the one hand, the richness of their culture and lifestyle
and the strength of their identity and, on the other, the mistreatment
they have suffered over the centuries. This clear and accessible account
of such a thoroughly complex and conflict-ridden situation will
particularly interest teachers, trainers, community workers, social
workers and people with political or administrative responsibilities in
the field. It is also a means for Roma organisations to disseminate
information. The final pages of the book set out the foundations for a
programme of tailor-made, concerted action.
