Seguimiento del acceso y la participación en la educación superior desde una perspectiva de derechos humanos

La educación superior forma parte del derecho a la educación y está protegido por el derecho internacional de los derechos humanos. Esto significa que los Estados tienen la obligación de proteger, respetar y hacer realidad el derecho a la educación superior y que hay formas de hacerles rendir cuentas por las violaciones o privaciones del derecho a la educación superior. El derecho internacional de los derechos humanos establece que la educación superior debe ser accesible a todas las personas por igual, sin discriminación, en función de la capacidad.
