As the average length of displacement increasingly exceeds the duration of a typical basic education cycle, business-as-usual approaches to Education in Emergencies (EiE) and funding have shown their limits. How do we ensure sufficient funding for EiE? Can we identify what works in EiE and develop an evidence-based approach to funding it?
