The Human Rights-Based Approach to Higher Education

Tuesday 17 July 2018
Deakin Downtown

Please join us for the launch of Dr Jane Kotzmann's new book titled 'The Human Rights-Based Approach to Higher Education: Why Human Rights Norms Should Guide Higher Education Law and Policy'.

Event details

The evening will include an opening address by Professor John Tobin, University of Melbourne Law School.

About the book

This book seeks to determine: is there still a place for the human right to higher education in the current international context? In seeking to answer this question, this book compares and contrasts two general theoretical models that are used to frame higher education policy - the market-based approach and the human rights-based approach.

About the author

Before embarking on her career in academia, Jane served as an associate in the inaugural Teach for Australia program. Prior to this, she was in private legal practice for a number of years, principally in commercial litigation.

Jane obtained her Bachelor of Laws (Hons) and Bachelor of Commerce from Deakin University and her Postgraduate Diploma in Teaching (Teach for Australia) from the University of Melbourne. Jane completed her PhD in relation to the human right to education.
