Protection of the Right to Education in Eastern DRC

The INEE French Language Community and INEE Secretariat held a webinar on the conflict in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and its impact on access to the right to education and pedagogical continuity.

This webinar aimed to:

  • Raise awareness of the situation in Eastern DRC; how it affects education and, in particular, the realization of the right to education.
  • Support INEE members and the strengthening of the ESU community, by listening to and connecting with key players in education (e.g. Education Cluster, GCPEA, Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action, INEE, etc.).

In this webinar, we heard from speakers on the current situation in Eastern DRC, its impact on education and protection, the Safe School Declaration, the right to education and opportunities for pedagogical continuity, and a needs analysis. We listened to testimonies and discuss needs and possible solutions to support education in Eastern DRC.

Videos shared during the webinar (in French) are available on YouTube.
