The aim of the ”JustNow” strategic partnership was the development of methodological-didactical materials relating to human rights education, combined with simulation game and diversity learning in non-formal and formal youth educational work. All project partners (Croatian Educational and Development Network for the Evolution of Communication – HERMES, The Kreisau-Initiative e.V., The Krzyzowa Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe and International Association for Intercultural Education – IAIE) have been cooperating for over six years in organizing the MICC project in which young people simulate the final phases of historical war crime trials cases.
MICC consists of intensive workshops on human rights, the historical background of specific conflicts and training in criminal law, and is consistently evaluated by participants as an intensive and lasting learning experience. “JustNow” educational materials allow teachers and youth workers to apply some of the MICC-inspired methods in the classroom, raising students’ awareness of various human rights and international criminal law issues in the process. This project was co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
