In recent years Brazil has filled the news, from hosting the World Cup and Olympic Games, to corruption scandals and most recently the President’s impeachment. Behind these events lies an upper middle income country that is still tackling basic development challenges from human rights to deforestation. João Gomes Cravinho, the European Union Ambassador to Brazil, explains how the delegation addresses these issues in a country where the traditional aid donor relationship no longer applies.

The *Privatisation in Education Research Initiative*, [2] the *Global
Initiative for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights* [3] and *the Right to
Education Project* [4] are organising a panel discussion titled *Setting
the Rules of the Game: how can regulations of private actors ensure the right
to education in the post-2015 setting?*

* *When? *Monday, 19 October 2015 from 18.00-20.00 BST
* *Where? *Clarke Hall [5], Institute of Education, 20 Bedford Way, London,
WC1H 0AL.

Panellists will speak to the conditions within which the private sector can
partake in the education sector, in particular in light of the new Global
Goal 4 on education for all and the legal right to education. The discussion
will explore what regulations are needed to allow for responsible and
acceptable engagement of private actors in education, at a time when the
emergence of a range of low-fee private schools targeting poor communities,
including large-scale commercial chains, has sparked controversy [6] in a
number of developing countries. [7] These schools have been problematised
on a number of levels including social equality, quality of education, and
teachers’ conditions.

Still, private schools may have a role to play in education systems and the
challenge is therefore for governments to craft adequate regulations to
ensure the private sector plays a positive role, which does not undermine the
efforts to realise the Global Goals and the right to education. The panel
will include representatives from the public and private sectors, teachers
unions and civil society, and a lively debate is expected with clear
recommendations established for the way forward.

Confirmed speakers include John Rendel (Executive Director of Promoting
Equality in African Schools – PEAS [8]),  Sylvain Aubry (Research and
legal advisor, Global Initiative for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights),
and Sylvia Mbataru (Legal office, the CRADLE, Kenya). The session will be
chaired by BBC Education Correspondent Sean Coughlan [9].

Our Organization with Headquarter in Vienna is working to empower local Citizen to know, understand, secure and enforce their roles, responsibilities, and engagements for the success of the MDGs and forthcoming SDGs.

The principle of ‘all human rights for all people’ enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) means just that. Alexander Cote from the International Disability Alliance told staff at the European Commission recently that the fact governments are still discovering how to assist people with intellectual disabilities, for instance, does not mean they can be denied their right to vote, buy a house or have a child.
