During this side event prior to the Global Education Summit: Financing GPE 2021-2025, co-hosted by the President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta, and the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, KIX will highlight findings on educational research during the pandemic. The event will be hosted in English with simultaneous interpretation in French.

The panel will present what has been learned by KIX supported research and knowledge mobilization initiatives in the context of COVID-19 in the Global South. It will focus on three complementary aspects:

  1. The design adaptations necessary to conduct research, of adequate standard and quality, in the context of a global health crisis;
  2. Observed changes in knowledge priorities, with policymakers forced to prioritize some research agendas over others;
  3. Forms of funding and support for education research available at this time.
