EUROPE: Students call for a global ombudsman
University World News,15 February 2009
 Student rights are being violated in institutions around the world and students’ groups have called on Unesco to establish a global ombudsman’s office to tackle breaches of their rights. At a meeting in Paris last month, student representatives from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and North America discussed issues they will present to the Unesco World Conference on Higher Education to be held in July.
It was the first time in five years that 17 organisations representing students across the globe took part in an official preparatory meeting for the conference. The meeting was organised by the European Students’ Union, through its international cooperation working group which is run by member organisations in Switzerland and Norway. 
Backed by Unesco and Education International, the representatives discussed plans for future student cooperation at the international level and submissions to go to the conference….
The Paris meeting produced a „global student statement” the union said represented a united student position that would be presented to the conference. The key elements of the statement are:
o That full investment in a higher education system for all, not the few, is a vital tool for long-term economic, social and environmental stability. It is a key component of sustainable development.
o For this reason, higher education must be made a policy priority and a fundamental right for all.
o Accessibility and quality must be the watchwords for global higher education and delivered hand-in-hand.
o Enrolment is just the start: adequate student support measures need to be put in place to ensure that students can complete their studies.
o Greater measures should be adopted to enshrine and protect student rights, including an international ombudsperson for students.
The union release said the meeting united the 17 regional and sectoral student groups „in a commitment to greater international cooperation on higher education, and on filling a void that has existed in this respect for several years”. 
„Such international cooperation therefore marks a major step forward in creating a stronger student movement – the overarching goal of the European Students’ Union for the year ahead,” the union said.
