Within the framework of the UNESCO World Higher Education Conference 2022, UNESCO IESALC will take part in the Round Table: New approaches to the right to higher education at 11:15-12:45 (Spain time) on May 19, 2022.
This high-profile roundtable is being organized in light of the reinvigorated efforts by UNESCO to place the right to higher education at the heart of the evolving right to education agenda. The roundtable will bring together world renowned experts and organizational partners with a shared commitment to elevating the right to higher education.
The roundtable will also mark the launch of two new UNESCO reports that lay the groundwork for new approaches to the right to higher education: “The Right to Higher Education: A Social Justice Perspective” and “The Right to Higher Education: Unpacking the International Normative Framework in Light of Current Trends and Challenges”.
The specific objectives of this Round table are to:
- Present and discuss the main findings of the new UNESCO reports that lay the groundwork for new approaches to the right to higher education;
- Stimulate expert discussion on the various components of the right to higher education and gather insights from experts to better understand the specific current trends;
- Discuss emerging challenges and brainstorm preliminary policy messages and key takeways to further enhance the right to higher education in light of the evolving dimensions of the right to education.
