Report of the UN Special Rapporteur on the right to education: Contributions of the right to education to the prevention of atrocity crimes and mass or grave violations of human rights

In the present report, the Special Rapporteur considers ways in which the right to education contributes to the prevention of atrocity crimes and mass or grave human rights violations.
