The Right to Education
The UNESCO Database on the Right to Education provides detailed information on the ratification of normative instruments and monitoring status of the right to education including national reports; constitutional and legal frameworks as well as education policies of the selected country.
The UNESCO-GEM Report World Inequality Database on Education (WIDE) highlights the powerful influence of circumstances, such as wealth, gender, ethnicity and location, over which people have little control but which play an important role in shaping their opportunities for education and life. It draws attention to unacceptable levels of education inequality across countries and between groups within countries.
