Conference: EDUCATIONAL JUSTICE AND SUSTAINABLE PEACE
June 26 - June 29
While the right to education has been guaranteed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights since 1948 (Article 26), it has often been acknowledged that an effective implementation of this right in the form of educational equity and justice has been achieved to an unequal and generally unsatisfactory extent. Such inequalities have not only been between Global North and Global South; within national education systems and even the microcosm of the school, access to education has too often been dependent on a student’s personal background, be it financial, social, ethnic, or familial.
