Right to education adaptation


In a rapidly changing world, where technology, globalization, climate threats, growing polarization, demographic and social dynamics are reshaping every aspect of our lives, education is undergoing a transformational journey. Education is no longer only confined to traditional classrooms and textbooks but has expanded to encompass lifelong and life-wide learning. 

The Initiative on the evolving right to education investigates how the right to education, as enshrined in international normative instruments, could be further reinforced to meet these evolving needs and address the twin crises of equity and relevance stated in Our Common Agenda Policy Brief 10: “Transforming Education”.  

As a contribution to the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and to mark the 63rd anniversary of the UNESCO Convention against Discrimination in Education, UNESCO, in partnership with the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Education, and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, is organizing a formal dialogue on this Initiative to discuss the findings to date, foster a global consultation, and explore the ways forward in addressing the twin crises through the normative framework on the right to education throughout life.
