UKFIET day conference on Education for Children affected by Emergencies.
3rd October 2018, 9:00-17:00
Venue: Cambridge Education, Cambridge
There has been an increasing awareness of the need to invest in education in emergencies, with humanitarian agencies acknowledging the need for longer-term solutions, and development actors increasing their focus on conflict-affected countries. This one-day conference aims to showcase UK knowledge and expertise in this area, promote dialogue and build partnerships for the generation and use of evidence in education in emergencies and protracted crises. It is aimed at researchers, practitioners, donors and policy makers. The conference will focus on three salient themes within education in emergencies: gender and inclusion in emergency contexts; forced displacement; political economy of aid, policy and practice to education in crises. It will include a combination of interactive workshops, presentations and keynote speeches.
Places are limited, however we will be live-streaming the Plenary Sessions which you can also register to view.
