Having our 2016 ERASMUS+ Capacity Building project approved, has been an extraordinary moment for all the partners. ‚ELA - Introducing modules on law and rights in programmes of teacher training and educational sciences’ aims at making a contribution to building rights based education systems. We, consortium partners, are deeply concerned about the role of rights based education in fostering social and economic development for all throughout the world. That concern underlies our Capacity Building project. ELA starts from the idea of inclusive education and equity of access and equality of educational opportunity. The underlining assumption is that enhancing equality in education requires a collaboration between educators and lawyers to promote rights based teaching, learning, school leadership and governance. Such a meaningful interdisciplinary collaboration requires lawyers to share legal knowledge and educators to show interest in legal matters.
