Education as a cultural right


The right of everyone to take part in cultural life is also intrinsically linked to the right to education. Stamatopoulou (2007, for literature reference see original source document) notes that “[t]he right to education is itself a cultural right and a precondition of the enjoyment of various other cultural rights, including language rights, the capacity to participate in the arts and other areas.” A plethora of legal instruments recognize the right to education.
