Abstract:

This work aims to explore the congruence between curricular recommendations and real practices in human rights education in social work. Through an integrative literature review, scientific publications on the subject are explored on an international scale. In addition, in the case of Spain, the training plans of national universities are reviewed. Three axes are analyzed: institutional prescriptions, the inclusion of human rights in the curriculum, and the content of the courses on human rights developed within their framework or alternative experiences. It presents a state of the question, a proposal of indicators and the challenges that the Social Work educational institutions must face if they want to make effective the ethical mandate of the defense and promotion of human rights as part of the professional role.

Keywords: Human rights education, Social work, curriculum, indicators
