[Behind the Pages] Exploring the Enforceability of Refugees' Right to Education JEiE Behind the Pages

    • Education

Behind the Pages, the podcast of the Journal on Education in Emergencies, features exciting and timely conversations with JEiE authors about their work on education in regions affected by crisis and conflict.

In this episode, Sarah Horsch Carsley and Garnett Russell discuss how political will, the availability of resources in refugee-receiving countries, and weak formal enforcement mechanisms create a gap between the spirit of the three international treaties that guarantee refugees’ legal right to education and refugees’ actual access to school.

In their article “Exploring the Enforceability of Refugees’ Right to Education: A Comparative Analysis of Human Rights Treaties,” Horsch Carsley and Russell find that treaties that focus on cultural, economic, and social rights, including the right to education, are less enforceable overall than treaties that secure political and civil rights.
