Abstract [en]

This paper examines how the universal human right to education can be understood in terms of what Seyla Benhabib considers as ‘democratic iterations’. By examining the use of the article on the universal right to education in the European Convention on Human Rights over a period of almost 60 years, not as an article with an unambiguous meaning, but as an article which from its very start was the subject of different interpretations and desires, I will argue for an understanding of the process of transforming universal right into both national law and debates, as democratic iterations. Thus, the aim of this paper is to explore the process of establishing the article on right to education, the European Convention on Human Rights, First protocol, within the domestic policy arenas in Sweden, until today.
