Armendariz Gonzalez said that this implies that education strengthens respect for human rights.
"There can be no education if it's not education on human rights; we need to place the human being as the main part of the education in its full context”.
He stressed that there are several challenges: the first is getting to know about Human Rights, the second is to believe in those Human Rights and this is another important aspect, there are those who know perfectly about Human Rights but do not believe in them. "There is no point in knowing about Human Rights if we do not trust and believe in Human Rights", He said.
These days come to give information about different topics to be addressed and talk about strong situations that are happening regarding violence, insecurity and health in which they didn't seem to find the way out.
