Human Rights and You - Ō Tika Tangata, and Te Mana i Waitangi

The Human Rights Commission has developed an online education programme,, to provide world-leading education that will help New Zealanders develop their understanding of what human rights are and what they mean.

The programme have framed human rights in a uniquely Kiwi context – discussing the issues and stories that have framed the development of human rights in Aotearoa New Zealand – and complements other work the Commission undertakes, increasing our public reach and impact. 

Commission’s Online Human Rights Education Programme combines three strands - human rights, education principles and practices, and digital experiences to provide:

  • a centre of easy to access human rights resources and education
  • users with the ability to learn at times that suit them 
  • tailored and interactive learning modules that educate people about human rights, and the cultural and societal issues related to them
  • makes learning about human rights more accessible 

The programmes are designed for a wide variety of audiences and education levels – and can be used in the classroom or office.
