Introduction 

One of the aims of the High-Level Meeting on Action for Refugee Education is to shine a light on policy developments and practical initiatives which are already delivering the aspirations and commitments of the Global Compact on Refugees. 

We know there are lots of good things happening to improve access by refugees and their host communities to quality educational opportunities. These efforts deserve to be more widely known. 

Organisations working to expand access to quality education for refugees and host communities are invited to share short descriptions of their work. 

These examples will be published as case studies on this website, shared on social media in advance of the Meeting and featured in a publication which will be produced as part of the Meeting. 

What we are looking for 

Case studies should show evidence of successful implementation of policy and programming on education for refugees in the spirit of the Global Compact for Refugees, Programme of Action. 

The event will focus on three critical areas designed to increase access to quality learning opportunities for refugees, namely inclusion, improvement and investment. 

Inclusion

Efforts which allow refugees to be included in the national education systems of their host country. 

Improvement 

Efforts designed to increase the quality of education provided to refugee and host community children and improve their learning outcomes. 

Investment 

Efforts to mobilise more and better funding to scale up access to quality learning opportunities for refugee and host community children and share responsibility for refugees more equitably. 
 

If you think you have an existing example of policy or practice which is making a contribution to one or more of these issues please download the detailed guidance on submitting a case study and submit your case study by Friday 14 September.
