Education Interrupted: Why Education of Children Affected by Emergencies and Protracted Crises Cannot Wait
Originally posted by The Institute of International and European Affairs
Emergencies and protracted crises, such as the current migration crisis, are disrupting the opportunities for education of an estimated 75 million children and youth across 35 countries.
UNICEF Associate Director for Education Josephine Bourne discussed the importance of investing in innovative strategies needed to meet the educational needs of these children, at a special event hosted by the Institute of International and European Affairs and Irish Aid.
Ms. Bourne also introduced the first global fund to prioritise education in humanitarian action, Education Cannot Wait: A Fund for Education in Emergencies, which was launched at the World Humanitarian Summit in May 2016.
