Youth and Adult Education Law in Plural States

A sound legal framework for education systems in plural states has been a recurring focus of interest from my dissertation research, where I pursued an inquiry into standard-setting instruments of the United Nations, the Council of Europe and the European Community in order to discover what international law expects from the education systems of linguistically, culturally and socially heterogeneous states. The analytical scheme developed therein is a vital asset to my state-level project in progress, titled “Towards a European Right to Adult Education – Reflexivity of Education Law in Plural States” (2008- 2010).
