The Latin American and African Network of Researchers in Privatization of Education (ReLAAPPe) is formed through the voluntary action of researchers from Latin America and Africa. The purpose of ReLAAPPe is to gather reflections and promote dialogues about the processes and effects of the privatization of education. Having as a principle education as a fundamental human right, this association supports the strengthening of public systems as a premise for implementation of educational improvement.  This initiative aims to advance the construction of knowledge on education and contribute to the materialization of the right for education.

ReLAAPPe is an initiative of the Group on Studies and Research in Educational Policy (GREPPE). It is composed of founding board members from Latin America, Africa, and other regions that study and publish on the subject of the privatization of education.
