Manos Antoninis, Director of the Global Education Monitoring Report, will present the 2019 report. The presentation will be followed by interventions and discussions addressing the most important findings and recommendations in the report and how to take them forward.

More people than ever are on the move. Some are fleeing from wars and conflict, some are seeking new opportunities. Refugees and displaced populations experience big barriers in being granted their right to education. Educated people are more likely to migrate while some people migrate in order to get a better education. The 2019 Global Education Monitoring Report explores the effects of migration and displacement on education opportunities, and vise versa. The report helps to inform the debate as two new global compacts on migration and refugees are being finalized and the global community is harnessing support for Sustainable Development Goal 4 promising quality education to everyone.
