The intersections between education, migration and displacement are not gender-neutral

Overview

Being on the move, whether as a migrant or a forcibly displaced person, has gender-specific implications both for education responses and for education outcomes. In a few cases, movement creates opportunities to break free from social moulds, but in others, it exacerbates gender-based vulnerability. Meanwhile, the education and skills that women have or gain can affect their ability to exercise agency or mitigate vulnerability in migration and displacement contexts. This calls for a gender lens to be used in analyses of education.
