In 2016, in cooperation with the Member States, UNESCO established a Drafting Committee to propose a preliminary draft for the future Global Convention on the Recognition of Higher Education Qualifications.

Building on the Regional Revised Conventions on Recognition, the future Global Convention aims to respond to the current context of internationalization and new trends of higher education and the inter-regional mobility of students, teachers and researchers.

The purpose of this third meeting of the Drafting Committee is to consider the entire draft text of the Convention with a view to finalizing the draft in the coming months. The preliminary draft of will be submitted for consideration by the Autumn Session of the UNESCO Executive Board and the 39th session of the UNESCO General Conference.
