The Right to Education Initiative (RTE), together with the Global Initiative for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (GI-ESCR) and UNESCO, submitted a joint written contribution to the consultation on the Global compact on refugees regarding the right to education of refugees.

In this contribution, they underline the importance to emphasis that education is a human right, universally recognised under international law,  and strongly suggested some changes in the paragraph related to education. In particular, they suggest to refer to international human rights law in addition to national education law and to add the need to strengthen the legal protection of the right to education.
