This partial and preliminary resource document has been produced by UNESCO as a contribution to the United Nations Year for Tolerance, 1995, and to the launching of the proposed United Nations decade for human rights education. It is cast within UNESCO's draft Integrated Framework of Action on Education for Peace, Human Rights and Democracy which brings together within a comprehensive lifelong approach those three main elements as essential to a culture of peace. It recognises, as does the Director-General's appeal, that education for tolerance within such an approach requires the active involvement of entire communities.
