Universal Periodic Review of Luxembourg

  • This report has been drafted by Broken Chalk to contribute to the 4th cycle, 43rd session of the Universal Periodic Review [UPR]. Since Broken Chalk is an organization aimed at fighting inequalities and improving the quality of Education worldwide, this report will focus on Education.
  • First, the report brings attention to the main issues in which Luxembourg could improve in regard to the Right to Education. Secondly, the report individuates some topics that could be tackled through Education. In doing so, Broken Chalk will commend Luxembourg for the efforts made and actions taken to improve Education and to use Education to bring awareness to other human rights topics. Lastly, in view of the points raised, Broken Chalk would like to offer a few recommendations to Luxembourg to continue improving in the field of Education.
  • In the last review of Luxembourg of 2018, the state received 149 recommendations, 7% of which were linked to the 4th goal of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)[i], namely ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all.
  • Luxembourg has stated that it believes the indivisibility of human rights to be a core principle, underlining that economic, social and cultural rights – among which there is the right to Education – are pivotal in guaranteeing the well-being of all. Luxembourg further expresses its commitment to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.[ii]
