Innocenti, in collaboration with the Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE), UNESCO and UNHCR, delivered a webinar this week exploring cutting-edge research on effective strategies for the inclusion of refugees in national education systems. Drawing on Innocenti’s launch of it’s new report ‘Including Refugee Learners in National Education Systems’, and featuring insights from complementary research studies conducted by UNHCR and UNESCO, the panel presented promising practices to highlight the opportunities and challenges of effective inclusion. Beginning with a global overview of educational inclusion from a policy and data perspective, presenters then dove into regional-level insights on refugee inclusion in the West and Central African region and the Latin American and Caribbean regions. The event was well attended with more than 120 participants. Josiah Kaplan represented UNICEF Innocenti along with the lead co-authors of the report, Rachel Marcus, on behalf of the Overseas Development Institute.
