Editors Hokenstad, Healy, and Segal, members of the Advisory Board of the Katherine A. Kendall Institute for International Social Work Education, here offer a resource manual designed to help American social work educators develop course modules and content for teaching international human rights. Containing course outlines, case studies, exercises, course assignments, and bibliographies, the book compiles some of the best and most useful information from educational programs currently being taught in the United States. An introductory chapter by Joseph Wronka gives an overview of international human rights documents and organizational implementation. Additional chapters on human rights and the use of the material in the social work curriculum help faculty members either develop courses on human rights or infuse human rights content into their existing course materials.
