To know whether the right to knowledge is achieved through
constitutional law on education and how it can be found to be enshrined
both in the domestic law of the States and in European Union law. The
theme is of greater relevance to fundamental rights in the today’s
political agenda. The purpose of this analysis is to demonstrate that
the role of universities is crucial, and that the EU actively promotes
education. These are the ways to promote development.

In the Portuguese national dimension, the right to education is
presented in the Constitution. In international European law is also
enshrined. In any case there is a positive dimension in this right that
involves the intervention of States.

Through a methodology with literature revision of national legal texts
and EU law it is possible to analyze the progress achieved historically
towards the integration objectives in the Member States' recommendation
to make education systems more adequate and inclusive.
