Agreement And Education

The other two contracts mentioned above should focus on certain categories of people considered to be particularly vulnerable and eligible. The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (1979) deals with education in Article 10. The provisions of this article are based in part on the Covenant on Economic Rights, and on an earlier UNESCO convention (the 1960 Convention against Discrimination in Education), but they detail specific conditions that States Parties apply to guarantee women “equal rights to men,” such as “the same conditions of career and professional orientation, access to education and graduation in educational institutions of all categories,… access to the same curricula, exams, teachers with the same qualifications of the same standard, and classrooms and equipment of the same quality,… eliminating a stereotypical view of the role of men and women at all levels and in all forms of education, as well as several other similar conditions. On February 8, 2002, 168 states ratified the convention. Diplomatic conferences are also convened from time to time to formulate and adopt less demanding forms of the agreement, such as. B an international statement or recommendation. Overall, statements generally focus on principles that should guide action, while recommendations tend to focus on practices, although this distinction is not always obvious.

The States concerned formally undertake to do everything in their power to comply with the provisions of the declaration or recommendation in question, without necessarily declaring themselves willing to adopt specific legislation, as might be necessary in a treaty. Statements, recommendations and treaties adopted by international conferences are commonly referred to as international normative instruments in diplomatic language.
