Forced Migration Review #60: Education: needs, rights and access in displacement
Issue #60 of Forced Migration Review is out, with a focus on “Education: needs, rights and access in displacement”. Education is one of the most important aspects of our lives – vital to our development, our understanding and our personal and professional fulfilment throughout life.
In times of crisis, however, millions of displaced young people miss out on months or years of education, and this is damaging to them and their families, as well as to their societies, both in the short and long term.
In FMR issue 60, authors from around the world debate how better to enable access to quality education both in emergency settings and in resettlement and asylum contexts. These authors represent governments, international donors, non-governmental organisations, UN agencies, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, academia, local education projects and a legal firm. And some of the authors have themselves experienced the challenges of learning and teaching while displaced.
FMR 60 also includes two ‘general’ articles, one on localisation and one on implementing the Global Compacts.
