Boys' disengagement from education - Technical consultation

This technical consultation will enable national research teams, reference group members and UNESCO staff to reflect on key findings and opportunities emerging from national case studies on boys' disengagement from education. It will offer a platform for joint advocacy, policy dialogue and support to countries to support gender equality in and through education.

Recognising that the patterns of boys’ disengagement from education vary significantly by region, UNESCO is undertaking national case studies across four regional contexts (Asia-Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Arab States, and Sub-Saharan Africa). In six countries (Fiji, Jamaica, Kuwait, Lesotho, Peru, and the United Arab Emirates), national research teams are examining the nature and root causes of boys’ disengagement from education, which groups are particularly at risk, and what policies and programmes are effective to ensure that boys thrive in education and are able to achieve their full potential.
