The mobilisation of civil society to pressure States to implement the right to education can have a very powerful impact.
This may be done at school and community level as well as regional, national or international level.
Campaigns can push the government:
- To ratify international treaties that guarantee the right to education
- Enact legislation aligned with their international obligations
- Adopt policies to guarantee the right to education
Various strategies can be used, inter alia, petitions, demonstrations, meeting with duty-bearers and mobilisation of the media.
