Event description
This international workshop aims at achieving a systemic solution for higher education in emergencies.

About this Event

The Global Platform for Syrian Students will organise an International Workshop on “Higher Education in Emergencies - Doing More, Better and Faster” , initially scheduled for 2 December 2019, has been postponed to January 20, 2020 at the same venue, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, in Lisbon, Portugal.

We apologise to those of you who have already booked for the Workshop. We very much hope to see you on the new date, Monday, January 20. Come and join us to help advance the agenda of higher education in emergencies!

This International Workshop builds upon the momentum generated by the conference organised by the Global Platform in Lisbon in April 2018 as well as on the commitments made in the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals Agenda and the Global Compacts for Refugees and Migrants as well as the first Global Refugee Forum to be held in Geneva on 17 and 18 December 2019.

This event aims to promote collective efforts to achieve a systemic solution to the problem of delivering more, better and faster higher education opportunities for refugees, students at risk or in forced displacement. It seeks to generate greater mobilization of the higher education sector to contributing to deliver a true global academic response to the equally global challenge of empowering young people through quality higher education, in particular in conflict-affected societies, fragile settings and protracted crises.

Against this backdrop, this International Workshop will have a five-fold aim:

• to discuss the lessons learned and the best practices of HEIs in dealing with the integration of refugees and other students in forced mobility into the academic system;• to identify the main existing gaps and how to collaborate around them to come up with joint solutions of the 21st century;• to launch an updated Report on “Higher Education in Emergencies: a road map to achieve sustainable change” • to discuss further a broader project that has been developed since 2014 aimed at setting up a Rapid Response Mechanism for Higher Education in Emergencies (RRM) and invite participants to join it.• to launch a global campaign to raise a voluntary “Youth Education Solidarity“ contribution (“the YES!-levy”) within the global academic community

This event will mainly bring together the academic community – representatives of HEIs, associations of HEIs, student associations – whilst representatives of international and regional bodies, donor agencies and foundations, the private sector, civil society groups, youth and the media will also contribute with their reflections and experience to the outcomes of this family reunion.

The International Workshop on “Higher Education in Emergencies- Doing More, Better and Faster” initially scheduled for 2 December, 2019, has been postponed and will take place on January 20, 2020 at the same venue, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, in Lisbon, Portugal.

A preliminary concept note is available.

Further details will be available at the Platform’s website (www.globalplatformforsyrianstudents.org) and at www.rrm-online.org.
