Education and Workforce Opportunities for Refugees and Migrants
At 68.5 million, the global number of forcibly displaced people is at its highest since the end of the Second World War. Over half of all refugees are children, and they face massive educational disadvantages. Their lack of access to education hinders not only their own well-being and future prospects, but also the future of both their own and host countries.
Building on recent seminars on language policy and social and emotional learning, this program will bring together experts, policymakers and practitioners from a wide range of organizations, sectors and countries to develop policy and financing solutions that can create better education outcomes and life chances for both refugees and displaced people and their host communities.
