The right to education is ensured by multiple international agreements, including the Human Rights Declaration or the International Convention on the Rights of the Child, and by national laws and regulations. However, globalization processes alter the traditional conception of the right to education as simple access to schooling. The devaluation of educational credentials due to an increasing educational supply, the importance of early childhood education or the centrality of training practices acquired out of the school system are factors that widen the concept of the right to education worldwide. So, this research line investigates what is the meaning of the right to education today by addressing questions such as:

1. How the right to education should be defined today?

2. Which educational processes and institutions must be considered to watch, evaluate and guarantee the right to education?

3. Which are the education requirements for individuals to achieve social inclusion, enjoy future opportunities and live a plenty life?

4. Is there something like a "right to learn"? Can it be defined and quantified? How?

5. How are different countries positioned with regard to the extended definition of the right to education?
