The Journal of Asynchronous Learning Networks, in collaboration with 5 international journals, is launching a call for research and “effective practices” papers to be published in 2008 concerning distance education and the right to education (in particular reference to article 26 of the Universal Declaration of the Human Rights of December 10th, 1948) :More information.
* What is the role of distance education in the implementation of the right to education ?
