On June 15, RTE, GI-ESCR, NORRAG and California State University, Sacramento co-organised an online event to launch the book ‘Realizing the Abidjan Principles on the Right to Education: Human Rights, Public Education and the Role of Private Actors in Education’.
More than 100 people joined the online event to hear chapter authors and editors present the most salient and crucial aspects of their work in two minutes or less. The discussion which followed emphasised the varied challenges and developments in different national and educational contexts with regards the defense and protection of the right to education.
‘Realizing the Abidjan Principles on the Right to Education: Human Rights, Public Education and the Role of Private Actors in Education’ is a collaborative initiative, co published by Edward Elgar and NORRAG, and jointly edited by Delphine Dorsi, RTE’s Executive Director, Sylvain Aubrey (GI-ESCR), Frank Adamson (Sacramento State University), and Mireille de Koning (Open Society Foundations).
The book is available to read and download for free via open source.
