organisations with regards to political, economic and social participation of

From19 October 2015
in London (United Kingdom)
Organised byPrivatisation in Education Research Initiative, Global Initiative for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and Right to Education Project

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].
