Education International (EI) and UNESCO’s Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report invite you to attend the Insights from the 2019 Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report and BRICE project: A dialogue forum on the education response to displacement. The event will combine the launch of the 2019 GEM Report Migration, displacement and education: Building bridges, not walls with a peer learning forum for core partners from EI’s Building Resilience in Crises through Education (BRICE) project.

The event will discuss the obstacles to quality education for refugee and migrant children and youth and the learnings the 2019 GEM Report and BRICE project offer for finding solutions to these challenges.

This joint event will open with introductory remarks from the UNESCO’s Director of the Division for Cooperation, Intersectoral follow-up and Partnerships for Africa Mr Du Yue and a presentation of the 2019 GEM Report by Senior Policy Analyst Mrs Anna Cristina D'Addio. A high-level panel with Ministers of Education from participating BRICE countries, donor governments and civil society representatives will explore promising practices in ensuring safe, quality education for all learners.

The event will bring together representatives of country missions to UNESCO, UNESCO staff, BRICE project partners, teachers/teacher union representatives, non-government organizations and civil society partners, among others.
