IIEP Strategic Debate (online event)

Lessons in educational policy-making:
perspectives from two education ministers

Join us online!

Please join us online 15 November 2018 for our next IIEP Strategic Debate on lessons in educational policy-making. This event will feature Ms Najat Vallaud-Belkacem, the former Education Minister for France, and Stefania Giannini, former Education Minister for Italy, who is now the Assistant-Director General for Education at UNESCO. In a wide-ranging discussion, both former Ministers will reflect on the challenges and opportunities they faced during their time in educational policy-making while also looking beyond their national contexts in the era of the Sustainable Development Goals and the global pursuit for quality education for all.

This event will be held in English and French.

There is widespread recognition of the global learning crisis, with millions of children and youth unable to perform basic skills in reading, writing, and math. What is less clear is what children need to learn and how we can foster all-inclusive quality education for a rapidly changing future. In pursuit of SDG 4, we must look beyond the obvious and debate new ideas and strategies that will ultimately redefine learning while ensuring accessibility for all.

To help advance these conversations, IIEP is pleased to announce its 2018 Strategic Debate series. Under the title, Meeting SDG 4’s learning objectives: looking beyond the obvious, an array of experts in the education field will come to IIEP over the coming months to debate salient issues around SDG 4 and put forth new solutions and ideas on what is really required to make this bold vision for education a reality.
