La défense du droit à l'éducation passe par celle du service public
AbstractThis working paper dealing with the right to education is at the origin of a written statement presented by the Centre Europe Tiers-Monde (CETIM) during the March 2007 4th session of the Human Rights Council of the United Nations Organization in Geneva (item 2 : implementation of the General Assembly Resolution 60/251 of 15 March 2006, symbol : A/HRC/4/NGO/18). Education is one of the keys to successful development strategies and a means of realizing the objectives of socialization, fulfillment of the human person and equality. The principles that should underpin its policies are its public character, its universality and its cost-free access at all levels. It is a question of building a world based on the recognition of the non-commercial status of education, of scientific knowledge and of cultural productions.
