Achieving quality education for internally displaced children and young people

At the end of 2020, according to the Global Report on Internal Displacement 2021, a record 55 million people were displacement within their country - the highest figure ever recorded. It is estimated that 23 million of these people are below the age of 18. Internally displaced children and young people are frequently denied access to quality education, due to discrimination and the financial, legal, and security challenges faced by their families.

This webinar highlighted the real-life day-to-day challenges young IDPs experience when seeking access to quality education, which is fundamental to their healthy development and future life chances. It also reflected on the perspectives of teachers who have been displaced, and the challenges they have faced both personally and professionally in attempting to support the learning of children and young people in their communities.

The webinar brought together a diverse set of panelists, including a young internally displaced person; the UN Special Rapporteur on IDPs; a Ministry of Education official; a member of the UN Secretary General’s High-Level Panel on IDPs; and representatives of Save the Children and INEE.
