Chapter Summary

The subject matter of this chapter is the state obligation to 'appropriately guarantee' that the law of education safeguards everybody's right to an identifiable quantum of quality education. The chapter focuses on the fact that the concept of resources in international human rights law also covers other aspects than mere money-talk, including human, technological and informational resources as central elements for the provision of quality education. It then concentrates on the state duty to create a sound legal framework that enables the enjoyment of an individual right to education. Moreover, attention is drawn to the fact that neither positive state obligations nor the related concept of resources are fixed once and for all. Instead, they may change with time and shall be interpreted in their due social context.

Keywords: international human rights law; law of education; resources
