What is the role of distance education in the implementation of the right to education? How is distance education involved when education is seen as a right ? What is its position in educational policy, as a factor of quality and an instrument for liberty?

The JALN, in collaboration with 5 international journals, will publish  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).  This theme can be approached from multiple points of view, pedagogical, sociological, economical, political, legal.

Papers should emphasize practical approaches using concrete examples, actual data, and strategies for implementation. When JALN papers focus on the right to education in the U.S., it will be helpful to indicate how U.S. strategies might also be useful to international readers.

The six collaborating journals are:
