Privatisation in Chile - Report to the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights

published 11 November 2014 updated 7 January 2022

The report was submitted by several civil society organisations to the United Nations Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights ahead of its pre-session during the first week of December, following which it will decide on a "list of issues", including questions which the Chilean authorities will have to respond to in writing.

The report calls on UN human rights experts to question the government of Chile about the human rights violations resulting from its privatised education system. The report is also released while the Chilean parliament is about to review a second package of laws to reform the education system, which will be crucial for the future orientation of the education system in Chile.
