FAMME-LIRAB – Gaps in the right to education?


Project summary

The right to education includes adult education and serves inter alia the participation in society and society's affluence. Due to unequal structures in society, unequal chances for certain social groups - like for instance for migrants, people with disabilities, very young or elderly women - become evident in the intersections of axes of inequality. Special guaranteed obligations for the right to education were hence included in official legal documents of the EU, the Council of Europe and the United Nations.

In the framework of this project the ETC will take over two areas of research:

  1. Via an accessibility study, the goal is to research which groups participate in educational offers in the sector of occupational orientation, and if these offers increase the participation of various groups in the labor market. For this, a norm-based approach has been chosen.
  2. Via an evaluation, the effectiveness of project schemes (development of instruments for a queer-feminist educational and occupational orientation and its trial through partners) shall be tested.
