From August 16-22, 2010, 120 students from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, and Serbia traveled to Lake Ohrid, Macedonia, to participate in the Southeast Europe Regional Project Citizen Showcase and Human Rights Camp. Students were joined by thirty teachers and chaperones, as well as almost 100 distinguished guests from eight countries including Montenegro, Macedonia, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, and the United States. This groundbreaking event was the culmination of a two year program funded by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor. Utilizing the Center for Civic Education’s Project Citizen materials, the Idaho Human Rights Education Center and Co-operation Ireland created an adaptation to include human rights and an exchange component. It was the first event of its kind, building on a Project Citizen showcase to encourage tolerance and respect for human rights in a four-day camp.
