FORERE, Malebakeng. The relationship between the right of access to education and work, and sub-regional economic integration in Africa. Afr. hum. rights law j. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.2, pp.588-607. ISSN 1996-2096.

After considering the core objective of the sub-regional economic communities (RECs) in Africa and the obligations that human rights impose, this article submits that the right to access education, the creation of employment and the right to access work intra-regionally are central to economic integration in Africa. Consequently, the article analyses how economic integration involves these rights and the extent to which these rights may act as catalysts to deepening economic integration in RECs. It concludes that state parties to the RECs must allow free movement of persons and the right of establishment to enable community citizens to have access to education and work.
