The Indicator Tree - a visualisation of the right to education indicators

TREE ~ INDICATORS ~ FORUM ~ WORKSHOP ~ CASES ~ RESOURCES ~ CONSTITUTIONS

A useful way of illustrating the indicators - how they spring from shared human rights principles, how they interlink and how they grow in an almost organic fashion - is to use the image of a tree: 

 

Leaves - our 200+ indicators (see 5 of them illustrated below)

 

Secondary branches - 37 headings that order the 200+ (see here)

 

Main branches - our framework of Governance, Availability, Accessibility, Acceptability and Adaptability

  

Trunk - 3 cross-cutting principles of non-discrimination, participation, accountability

 

Roots:

National constitutions and laws

Regional human rights conventions and charters (African, American, Arab, European);

International human rights law (ICESCR, ICCPR, CERD, CEDAW, CRC, CMV, CRPD, GC 13, etc)

 

 

Leaves: 5 illustrative examples out of the 200+ indicators:
