INNOTECH initiates scoping study on rights-based education

In an effort to strengthen the pursuit of Education for All and MDG goals in Southeast Asia, SEAMEO INNOTECH, through its Research Studies Unit, will be conducting a scoping study on rights-based education in the region. The workshop will be held at INNOTECH from August 27 to 29, 2014.

The scoping study aims to review the achievements of different Southeast Asian countries in promoting education from a human rights perspective in the past decade. It also aims to analyze the existing Southeast Asian policies and practices, as well as case studies on promoting rights-based education. It will be divided into four phases—preliminary desk review, primary data gathering through consultation with stakeholders, report writing, and publication and research dissemination.

Rights-based education experts from different SEAMEO-member countries are expected to participate in the said workshop and share their ideas in strengthening the promotion of rights-based education in Southeast Asia.

The rights-based approach focuses on dignity and respect for every individual in order to address underlying issues of poverty, injustice and exploitation.
