Educational Pluralism in the European Union: Report of 10 educational systems by OIDEL, France

Internationally, educational pluralism is anchored in the Universal Declaration of Human rights. On the European level, a strong consensus on this pluralism can be observed. International NGO OIDEL, based in Geneva, has presented a study on the status of pluralism of governmental and non-governmental education in 10 European countries.

Research has shown that a country’s history and state support largely define the landscape of non-governmental education.

Overall, it can be said that the role of public authorities is essential to guarantee that all citizens enjoy educational pluralism.
