Farewell to a champion

An online memorial has been set up to Katarina Tomasevski, the former UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Education, who died last month.

Katarina was a remarkable woman who was passionately committed to free education for all children. Ultimately she took the UN on directly over their lack of commitment to mainstreaming the right to education, delivering a blistering resignation speech. That speech can be seen along with her other writing and reports on the Right to Education website that she established.
