Migration and displacement have positive and negative influences on education systems. At the same time, education can help societies manage the challenges and opportunities presented by migration and displacement. UNESCO’s Global Education Monitoring Report will convene a high-level panel to present key findings and recommendations from its 2019 edition, Migration, Displacement and Education: Building Bridges, Not Walls. High-level representatives from key education stakeholders will discuss the responsibilities of the international community, governments and local actors to build inclusive education systems in line with Sustainable Development Goal 4 – Quality Education – and the commitment to leave no one behind.
