Conflict-Sensitive Education: Why and How? High-Level Symposium
Supporting children's access to quality education in conflict-affected countries by promoting a harmonized vision, approach and tools to achieve Education for All Goals: such will be the subject of the symposium co-organized by UNESCO-IIEP and INEE through its Working Group on Education and Fragility.
The symposium will bring together some 100 to 150 high-level participants representing ministries of education and other government bodies, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, UN agencies, bilateral development organizations, the private sector, civil society organizations, as well as leading national and international agencies promoting education in emergency and fragile contexts. The symposium will see the launch of the INEE harmonized approach and tools to introduce conflict sensitivity in education policies, programmes and investment. The participants are expected to endorse a Common Framework for prioritizing conflict-sensitive education in crisis-affected countries, and for the further mobilization of all key stakeholders around concerted actions to help these countries achieve Education for All targets and the MDGs.
The symposium will be followed by a cocktail and concert.
