Missing Data and Inequities Summit

Wednesday 14 February 2024

12:00 to 14:00 CET 


Missing Data and Inequities Summit

This summit will discuss key themes arising from the fifth book in the NORRAG Series on International Education and Development: Achieving Equitable Education: Missing Education Data and the SDG 4 Data Regime published by Edward Elgar Publishing. Achieving Equitable Education argues that critical gaps in education data are hampering the achievement of one of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals: “inclusive and equitable quality education…for all”. This book critically explores education data gaps across regions, themes and levels of education, highlighting key relationships and disconnects between national, regional and global data needs and uses of data under the SDG4 data regime.

The summit will include presentations by the editors and authors, reflections by Dr. Pali Lehohla, the former Chair of the United Nations Statistics Commission, two panel discussions. The first panel will discuss regional issues related to the SDG 4 data regime, including continued gaps, areas of progress, and efforts and greater localization needed in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Middle East and North Africa. The second panel will discuss the thematic chapters on gender, Indigeneity and Internally Displaced Peoples as well as the importance of capturing the intersectionality of multiple dimensions of marginalisation  underscored by a framework on how inequalities are produced. The proposed framework suggests new dimensions/targets for SDG 4 monitoring, and the implications for addressing inequalities in education.

Interpretation will be provided in Arabic, French, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. Closed captions in various languages will be available.
