2019 Global Education Monitoring Report: Building bridges, not walls
17th January 2019
The Global Education Monitoring Report is an editorially independent and evidence-based annual report hosted and published by UNESCO. Its core mandate is to monitor progress towards the education targets in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The 2019 GEM Report, entitled Building bridges not walls, focuses on migration and displacement. It serves as a reminder that all children have the right to quality education regardless of their migration status. Migrant and displaced children and youth need to be fully included in national education systems – and education planners need to respond to their needs. But education is also a powerful tool to help societies manage the opportunities and challenges posed by migration and displacement.
Its conclusions and recommendations respond to the call to #LeaveNoOneBehind. They aim to help countries, which signed up to the two global compacts on migrants and refugees last December, deliver on their education commitments.
