European Association for Education Law and Policy
About ELA – Welcome and Mission
The European Association for Education Law and Policy (ELA) is an independent association, with its head office in Antwerp.
It’s infrastructure is provided for by the University of Antwerp.
Education and the Law is the motto of the Association.
Education has the potential to unlock the door to equality and participation, it constitutes the basis necessary for empowerment of each individual, and for the promotion of all human rights.
Education law means constructing, block by block, the foundation that will support educational rights in all nations and for all peoples and individuals.
The importance of the law notwithstanding, its members are aware of the relative value of each legal principle, whether it is founded on a convention or on some other legal source. ELA aims to encourage progress in educational rights by promoting the right to education as a right, by elaborating education law as a discipline and by actively supporting every serious effort made toward the gradual and progressive codification of educational rights and educational legislation.
