IHEID signs a Pledge to Make Geneva a Global Hub for Education in Emergencies
The Graduate Institute, Geneva, a NORRAG partner, has signed a Pledge of the 2019 Global Refugee Forum to make Geneva a Global Hub for Education in Emergencies.
This is a call for action to address the threat by the Covid-19 Pandemic to the education of those furthest left behind. It highlights that every government, donor agency, humanitarian and development actor, along with academia, must work to ensure that education is not further de-prioritised.
The Pledge has also been signed by Education Cannot Wait (ECW), Global Education Cluster (GEC), Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE), Switzerland, United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), University of Geneva, as well as International Organization for Migration (IOM), United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
