Abstract:
This Ph.D. by independent research and publication is based on the author's book, Education Law, Policy and Practice in Northern Ireland (SLS, 2000) and a series of journal articles, chapters in edited collections and research reports in the area of education law and children's rights. The analysis is categorised into four inter-related aspects of education rights: (i) the domestic education law of Northern Ireland; (ii) the implications of international human rights law for Northern Ireland's education system; (iii) an analysis of the unique elements of Northern Ireland's education law which are of interest in other jurisdictions; and (iv) the significance of ensuring respect for children's rights in education, particularly in societies affected by conflict. The title of the thesis was chosen to reflect two broad strands of the author's work across these categories: first, research which documents the ways in which international human rights law has provided a stimulus for change within Northern Ireland's domestic law ('lessons for Northern Ireland'); secondly, research which highlights what is distinctive about Northern Ireland's approach to rights in education and might therefore inform law, policy or practice elsewhere ('lessons from Northern Ireland').
