The 'Education and Culture of Democracy' project ECUD (2014-2016) proposed to study, using a human rights-based approach, the means to reinforce the action of higher education in favor of culture of democracy in the European and Maghreb societies as an essential component of the quality of higher education.
The research focused on three main aspects:
- Education and training in the field of Human Rights;
- The democratic functioning of the university;
Transparency - conceived as a right to adequate information that ensures quality education and effective participation in training, research and governance - has been a criterion for cross-cutting evaluation of all three aspects.
