Webinar invitation: A prisoner’s right to education – 21 January 2021

Approximately 11 million people are currently incarcerated in penal institutions worldwide. While education is a fundamental human right, many of these penal institutions are overcrowded and at crisis point, unable to provide education according to international standards. In an effort to address this problem, UIL will host a webinar on 21 January 2021 entitled ‘A prisoner’s right to education’ as part of UNESCO’s ‘#RightToEducation’ campaign and to mark the 60th anniversary of the UNESCO Convention against Discrimination in Education.

 
 
WEBINAR INVITATION
‘A prisoner’s right to education;
(21 January 2021)
 

Approximately 11 million people are currently incarcerated in penal institutions worldwide. While education is a fundamental human right, many of these penal institutions are overcrowded and at crisis point, unable to provide education according to international standards. In an effort to address this problem, UIL will host a webinar on 21 January 2021 entitled ‘A prisoner’s right to education’ as part of UNESCO’s ‘#RightToEducation’ campaign and to mark the 60th anniversary of the UNESCO Convention against Discrimination in Education.

Webinar speakers will present the challenges to overcoming discrimination against prisoners in the field of education, and provide examples of best practice with regard to measures designed to ensure that their right to education is upheld. They will address the different conventions on prison education that are already in place; stress the importance of access to education and training for people who are incarcerated; and highlight disparities in the field. Research findings from UIL’s ongoing, comprehensive literature review related to prisoners’ right to education will be discussed with webinar participants.
