OPBP's latest report on "The Right to Early Childhood Development" is published

Oxford Pro Bono Publico (OPBP) partnered with The Equality Collective, a member of the Real Reform for ECD (RR4ECD) Campaign, to produce a comparative report on legal and policy developments of the right to early childhood development (ECD), and the nature and extent of State obligations in ensuring access to it, in Botswana, Ghana, Kenya and Zambia.

RR4ECD is a broad-based alliance supported by over 200 organisations, working towards securing and strengthening the Right to ECD for millions of young children in South Africa. The legal sub-committee of RR4ECD sought assistance in developing an advocacy brief on the right to ECD that focuses on what the state’s obligations should be and what the public entitlements are in relation to this right.

This report supplements a previous report that was published by OPBP last year on ECD, focusing on international human rights law – as applied in South Africa – and on legal developments in Brazil, Finland, India and the United Kingdom.
