The Right to Education Project aims to promote social mobilisation and legal accountability, looking to focus on the legal challenges to the right to education.

The cornerstone of the Project is the wide-reaching website on education rights, a partial continuation of the groundbreaking website (under the same address) of the former UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Education, Katarina Tomaševski.

To ensure continued relevance and engagement with activists and the academic community the Project also undertakes comparative research to advance an understanding of the right to education.

Housed by ActionAid International, and in partnership with the Global Campaign for Education and Amnesty International, the Right to Education Project is supported by the Open Society Institute and others.

At a minimum, human rights are a safety net for all of us – at home, at school, at work, in the places in which we have friendships and networks and in society as a whole. They can help guard against excessive state power or in some cases against individuals exercising inappropriate control over our lives and failing to treat us respectfully, be mindful of our dignity, or give us a ‘fair deal’. But they are also a set of guiding principles which can help us go beyond the minimum standards of decency and create a fairer, more tolerant society in which everyone has an equal chance to flourish as human beings, and play a full part in making decisions about and contributing towards their community.

The Human Rights Act[1]:

Your Human Rights in the UK are upheld by the Human Rights Act. This piece of legislation means that nobody can abuse your rights, and if they do, they can be taken to court. There are many institutions in the UK which fight to ensure that this legislation is respected.

It is important to know what you can do if you feel that your rights have been denied.


The United Kingdom government has set up a national human rights body to deal more widely with human rights issues of its citizens. The Equality and Human Rights commission promotes equality and human rights to create a fairer Britain. They provide advice and guidance, help implementing an effective legislative framework and raise awareness of your rights.
