Chapter Summary

The right to education also has an important role to play as a linkage and as a key to the unlocking of other human rights economic, social and cultural as well as civil and political ones. The link between education and health has likewise been emphasised on several occasions. A minimum level of education including literacy is necessary for the seeking and receiving of information and for the freedom of expression, assembly and association. The cross-cutting nature of the right to education explains the difficulties as to the classifying of the right to education as a first, second or third generation right. This chapter explores whether or to which extent an integrated approach to the right to education and other human rights is actually reflected in the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).

Keywords: CESCR; European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR); right to education
