The UN Special Rapporteur on the right to Education, Ms. Koumbou Boly Barry, is currently preparing a thematic report on the cultural dimension of the right to education. It will address how education systems can provide inclusive and quality education while reflecting and enabling the flourishing of cultural diversity and the cultural rights of each person.

Considering the many links with cultural rights, the Special Rapporteur invites organisations working on cultural rights to consider answering to the attached questionnaire, and will welcome your contributions in this discussion.

The deadline is 20 February. Replies should be sent by email to in word format and a maximum of 2500 words in English, French or Spanish. See attachments for the questionnaire and more info.
