L’alphabétisation étant un droit fundamental pour tous et toutes, comment expliquer que 62 % des femmes en Afrique se voient refuser le droit à l’alphabétisme ? Comment infléchir les tendances actuelles pour éviter que près de 800 millions d’adultes parmi lesquels une forte proportion de femmes soient encore analphabètes en 2015 ?

Même s’il y a une volonté des parties prenantes de respecter les engagements internationaux sur l’égalité des sexes et l’autonomisation des femmes, il n’en demeure pas moins que les efforts restent insuffisants au regard de l’ampleur du défi. L’UIL se...

Amartya Sen defined development as the creation of capabilities or capacities. One of the crucial capacities is basic education. With no access to writing, reading and numeracy, people are unable to fight against poverty and to build their lives in the current global environment. In this perspective, the right to education cannot be conceived only in a subsidiary or ancillary way. The realisation of the right to education is an essential pre-condition for human dignity and for development. But how does one measure this reality?

This book presents a methodology for observation and...
