Simpson, Peter

Review of: Foley Jr., W.J. (2021). Suggestions for critical awareness, accountability, and transformation in human rights education. Current Issues in Comparative Education, 23(1), 77-89.
The examination of critical approaches to human rights and the focus on community engaged spaces to enact human rights are rich contributions of Foley's article. He also presents innovative approaches and methodologies to ensure student success and positive outcomes for all stakeholders involved. Going forward, more detail about the role of critical human rights in the higher education sector may be beneficial.
