The right to education has a fundamental importance for children in migration context. Besides its general value, realization of the right to education is a prerequisite sine qua non for successful integration of migrant children into the host society. This article touches upon the right to education of migrant children in the context of activity of the Committee on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families, that has produced four general comments, each having provisions of the right of education. The paper reveals that the significance of the mentioned Committee’s work is being strengthened and supported by means of basing the conclusions of this treaty body on the outcomes of other treaty bodies that have wider participation of States. The two joint general comments adopted in November, 2017, by the Committee on the Rights of the Child and the Committee on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families, on human rights of migrant children are taken as the most recent examples.
