The decision stemmed from an agreement the six institution signed Thursday with the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights.
They are the universities of Belas, Methodista de Angola, Privada de Angola and the higher institutes Metropolitano, Social Sciences and International Relations.

The national strategy recommends that human rights should be taught in schools at all levels.
The official stressed that a similar agreement has been signed with the Ministry of Education, including the teaching of human rights subjects in primary and secondary schools.
