Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the right to education as protected by international law, i.e. by the various international and regional legal instruments and the legal instruments adopted by UNESCO and the ILO as Specialised Agencies of the UN. The discussion provides an overview of the various activities at the international level. The overview is divided into three sections. The first section lists World Summits organised by the UN, the documents adopted at the Summits and a succinct statement of the significance of each Summit or its documents for the right to education. The second section follows the same outline with regard to Intergovernmental Conferences organised by UNESCO or under its auspices. The third section lists various other activities at the international level relevant to the right to education.

Keywords: ILO; international law; right to education; UNESCO
