For the past 18 months, a number of international, national and local organisations have been working together to research and assess the impact of the growth of private education in light of human rights standards. This work, which is led by the Global Initiative on Economic Social and Cultural Rights (GI-ESCR) in Partnership with the Privatisation in Education Research Initiative (PERI) and the Right to Education Project (RTE), has produced an effective methodology, templates and other resources that can be made available to and used by other organisations.

This methodology involves desk and/or field research and preparation and presentation of so-called “parallel reports” to human rights bodies.
