THE OXFORD SYMPOSIUM ON EDUCATION & HUMAN RIGHTS
THE  OXFORD SYMPOSIUM ON EDUCATION & HUMAN RIGHTS 

The nature of human rights and liberties flowing from national, regional and state constitutions as well as international conventions of the United Nations regarding human rights are appropriate for Symposium discussions.  Human rights laws are of special interest, including the United Nations conventions on racial discrimination, the rights of the child, and the convention for the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women. In the Symposium’s wide realm of issues may be papers concerning due process and Magna Carta and Blackstone’s Commentaries as historical antecedents to education and human rights laws of today. Of major importance, too, is U.S. constitutional law, the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and, the judicial decisions interpreting those instruments.
