The State, Business and Education

Public-Private Partnerships Revisited

Edited by Gita Steiner-Khamsi and Alexandra Draxler

The State, Business and Education contributes to the ongoing debates surrounding the effects of public funding of private entities by examining the ways in which they affect the quality and equity of those services, and the realization of human rights. Using case studies from both the developing and developed world this book illustrates the variety of ways in which private actors have expanded their involvement in education as a business.

On 22 January 2013, the Philippines initiated compulsory arbitration against China under Annex VII of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) with regard to their disputes in the South China Sea. The Award on Jurisdiction and Admissibility issued on 29 October 2015 and the Final Award issued on 12 July 2016 have been the most anticipated decisions from an international tribunal in the law of the sea, since the entry into force of UNCLOS in 1994. This introductory chapter provides an overview of UNCLOS dispute settlement mechanisms, the background to the South China Sea disputes and the key legal issues in the South China Sea Arbitration necessary to understand the legal implications of the Awards.

As the PPP in education phenomenon increases in volume and reach, so does the intensity of the interchange around their legitimacy and pertinence. This chapter discusses concerted efforts undertaken by a growing body of national and international civil society organizations from the education and human rights fields to bring a human right perspective to the discourse around the implications of the increased involvement of private actors in education. It outlines the process, including the tensions arising from diverging views about policy approaches to private education as part of education systems. It describes and analyzes both the difficulties of such a process and the theoretical and analytical progress made in developing guiding principles for the involvement of private partners (for profit or not-for-profit) using human rights as both an ethical and legal framework. the chapter will conclude that the ongoing development of a normative framework is built on a process of informed and critical reflection by different stakeholders attempting to navigate and find a way forward in a contentious debate on the role of private actors in education.
