Thematic Focus: Education

Watch for:

The main focus of UNESCO's forthcoming 2019 Global Education Monitoring Report (GEM) will be on migration and displacement. It will "present evidence on the implications of migration and displacement for education systems but also the impact that reforming education curricula, pedagogical approaches and teacher preparation can have on addressing the challenges and opportunities posed by migration and displacement." The report will be launched on 20 November 2018; read the concept note for additional background info. In the interim, check the GEM blog as it will be posting related opinion pieces, and respond to this request for info for a background paper "on initiatives on higher education for refugees and asylum seekers globally."
