The first Global Refugee Forum, co-hosted by UNHCR and Switzerland, has concluded its three-day gathering in Geneva. The Forum sought to transform the way the world responds to refugee situations and generate new approaches and long-term commitments from the international community.
Among the nearly 26 million refugees worldwide, half are children under the age of 18. Of these children, nearly 4 million remain out of the classroom.
With education one of the six focus areas of the Forum, the Global Partnership for Education shared its progress in supporting countries to include refugees in schools and build strong, resilient and inclusive education systems.
