10 May 2023
Submissions now online (See below)
In her first report to the Human Rights Council, to be presented in June 2023, the Special Rapporteur on the right to education intends to undertake a review of the achievements of the mandate on the right to education over the last 25 years. Indeed, in 2023 the mandate will celebrate its 25th anniversary. The time has come to take stock of the advances the mandate has made in understanding the normative content of the right to education under international human rights law. It is also important to reassert and reassess the added value of an approach based on the human right to education in education matters.
In addition, in her report, the Special Rapporteur intends to identify the current main challenges to the right to education today and the crucial issues that deserve attention for the future.
