Brussels – 3 December 2018: Education Above All (EAA) announces efforts to build a global consensus on recognising the academic credentials of migrant and refugee children at the 2018 Global Education Meeting.
Today, as representatives from around the world gather to discuss progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, Education Above All have announced a global drive to develop agreements on recognising across-borders, the educational achievement of school-age children who have had to flee their homes or have chosen to migrate to another country.
Despite the evident and growing pattern of purposeful and deliberate attacks on education in conflict areas, these attacks continue without accountability. And although they have received increased attention from UN bodies, Education Above All strongly believes that more needs to be done in order to protect students, educators, and education institutions from such violence.
Our programme, PEIC, is committed to protecting education from attacks, and harnessing the power of education to build peaceful societies."
