International Law on the Aims of Education

International Law on the Aims of Education

By Hadi Strømmen Lile



International Law on the Aims of Education is a practical and tangible guide to the international legal standards on the aim and content of education. Using Article 29 of The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) as a reference point, the book provides a detailed legal analysis of international minimum standards on how a child should be educated. The book adopts a traditional legal positivist approach to explore the scope and nature of international law on the aims of education. It is divided into three main questions: 1) What is international law and are the aims of education valid legal obligations? 2) What is the content and scope of these laws on the aims of education? 3) What are the obligations of authorities and teachers to respect and fulfil the law? The book is unique as the first book on international law dedicated separately to the aims of primary and secondary school education, not only focusing on human rights education. This book will be of great interest for teacher students, scholars and post graduate students in the field of education. It will also appeal to legal scholars as well as policymakers.
