Polish expert is in Armenia at the invitation of the RA Human Rights Defender Armen Tatoyan. During the visit to YSU he was accompanied by social pedagogue Barbara Smolinska.
“Mr. Tatoyan delivers lectures at our faculty and does his best to provide our tutors and students with the opportunity to communicate with the recognized experts in the field of the human rights and make the comparative analysis with our system. I think it is very important that the protection of the rights of the children is separated, and I am glad that our students have the opportunity to hear about this institution,” - welcoming the guests, said the Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Law Karen Gevorgyan.
Mr. Michalak touched upon the activities of the pedagogue Janusz Korchak, as many of the provisions from his works have served as a basis for the United Nations “Convention on the Rights of the Children.”
He then referred to the convention, its implementation and the countries that are members of the convention.
“Thanks to this convention rights of the children have become a priority. Children’s rights are not just moral claims or imaginary ideas. These are tangible rights available to every child. Roughly speaking, these statements are required to implement and use in today’s reality,” - said Marek Michalak.
The guest from Poland shared his own experience; spoke about the internal legislation of his country, specifications, etc. Mrs. Smolinska also made a speech and presented episodes from her experience.
Students were also provided with the opportunity to ask our guest questions of their interest.
