On 18 March 2015, France became the 20th State party to the Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
The Right to Education Project welcomes France's ratification to the Optional Protocol, along with the recent ratifications of Italy and Luxembourg, as an important step in increasing the justiciability of the right to education at the international level.
