Session Submission Type: Workshop
Private actors have played an increasing role in education in the last two decades. Human rights bodies and institutions have insisted that the debates raised by this involvement must be analyzed in the light of States’ human rights obligations. Yet, the human rights framework applicable to privatization issues needs to be unpacked. For this purpose, a group of experts is currently developing Guiding Principles on State obligations regarding private schools. These Principles are being drafted between January 2016 and December 2017, through a series of consultations.
This workshop forms part of the consultative process for the development of the Guiding Principles. It will allow participants to familiarize themselves with the process of developing the Principles, and to review, analyze and input into the latest draft. It is a unique opportunity to take part into the development of international standards, while participating in a deep conversation about the intersection of the human rights and education fields.
