Chapter Summary

This chapter examines how international human rights norms contribute to the creation of educational categories on the domestic level. Seen from another side, the same question reads: do legal categorisations support or even constitute discriminatory social orders? This concern is far from simple when we take into account the fact that even superficially neutral law may be discriminatory by its nature, and that discrimination may take place even in a situation where a seemingly neutral provision of law affects a category of persons in a disproportionate way compared to others. An approach advocated in the chapter proposes that though no victim of human rights violation should remain invisible and neglected, quantitative analysis also can add meaningfully to knowledge of the status of educational rights.
