« Right to education Project »

Vision & Mission

Our vision is a world in which human rights in, to and through education are realised - A world in which all people are empowered to know and claim their rights affecting education and where those with responsibility are held to account for the realisation of those rights.

We promote mobilisation and accountability on the right to education and builds bridges between the disciplines of human rights, education and development.

We generate and share research and implementation tools to empower education actors to advocate for the right to education. We also facilitate capacities development on the right to education.

A Collaborative Initiative

The Right to Education Project (RTE) was established in 2000 by the first UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Education, Katarina Tomaševski, and re-launched in 2008 as a collaborative initiative, which is supported by ActionAid International, Amnesty International, Global Campaign for Education, Save the Children and Human Rights Watch.

These partner organisations make up RTE’s Steering Committee, which serves as a governance body. The Steering Committee provides co-ownership and co-branding of the RTE website as well as advice on the strategic direction of RTE, including strategic and operational planning.
