Since the 1990 Jomtien Conference on Education for ALL (EFA) up to the Beijing World Conference of Women in 1995, education of women has been thrust in the center of government and NGO’s pronouncements, as they acknowledged the importance of providing women equal access to school and other educational opportunities. In Beijing, the discussion has led to a deeper reflection of the interconnections of women’s education and empowerment as well as the complex relationships between democratizing opportunities and the content of the provisions.

There are millions of people in prisons and other correctional institutions throughout the world. Most of them have no higher vocational or other advanced education, and even in countries with a universal right of access to 10 or more years of schooling, a large minority – commonly between 25 and 40 per cent – face difficulties in reading, writing and numeracy and in conducting social transactions. The right to basic education in prisons has been shown to be a prerequisite for achieving the internationally agreed goal of ensuring a basic level of education for all.

International Literacy Year, 1990, was one of those (sadly increasingly rare) occasions on which we were able to mark that intrepid achievement – access to the written word – of many millions of men and women in the course of the century now coming to a close. Literacy has been integral to my professional duties. Working for an international organization, UNESCO, I have been actively involved in this field – as an actor; as a ‘demonstrator’ addressing real-life issues on the ground; as a witness or observer; even as an organizer of meetings, symposia and congresses such as the one...
