More on the Post – 2015 Education Agenda

Applying the Right to Education to the Post-2015 Education Agenda 
Delphine Dorsi, Right to Education Project

The Right to Education Project has just published a paper titled Applying Right to Education Indicators to the Post-2015 Education Agenda. This paper is our contribution to the on-going discussions to agree the formulation of the post-2015 education goal and targets, and to identify appropriate indicators to measure progress towards them.

The paper argues that the post-2015 education agenda should incorporate a human rights perspective. We warn that the goal and targets that States will politically commit to should not undermine their existing legal commitments to realise the right to education under international human rights law. To clarify the link between the post-2015 agenda and the right to education, the paper indicates the relevant treaties and specific provisions that apply for each target, explaining the different types of States’ obligations.
