This list contains 51 indicators relevant to the monitoring of education under attack. They are divided into four sections - Attacks on schools and universities; Attacks on students, teachers and other educational personnel; Military use of schools and universities; and transversal or cross cutting indicators, which apply to more than one category and that are crucial to the analysis from a human rights’ perspective.
Each indicator is accompanied by comments and supplementary detail.
This thesis aims at a better understanding of the challenging right to education emergence, often embedded within “social rights” or “debts” categories. This study is performed through the demonstration that the positive aspects of education are usually grasped using indirect references like the education public service and two civil liberties: education and conscience. These references remain the norm today despite the reality of the existence of a right to education since its supranational recognition and the recasting of education within the french domestic law.

The right to education in international human rights law is contained in number of international treaties. The most comprehensive coverage of the right is found within the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) under articles 13 and 14. The primary level of education is an essential and integral phase in the development of a child, without the right to education children are unable to realize other rights.
