NORRAG in cooperation with California State University, Sacramento (CSU), the Global Initiative for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (GI-ESCR) and the Right to Education Initiative (RTE) is organising the online book launch of Realizing the Abidjan Principles on the Right to Education: Human Rights, Public Education, and the Role of Private Actors in Education on 15 June 2021 from 16:30 CEST.

The third volume in the NORRAG Book Series on International Education and Development, published by  E.
