Detalles del proyecto

There are at least 1,5 million refugee children aged 12-17 in developing countries today. Only 3% of them have access to education. Yet their generation will be called on to lead their war-torn societies tomorrow.


  • To reaffirm the urgent need for more and better post-primary education for refugees.
  • To exchange information and experience and enhance co-operation.
  • To improve our knowledge of post-primary education for refugees.
  • To take stock of good practices and recommend practical measures.

Eight thematic workshops were held by expert speakers. Participants were invited to share good practice and formulate practical recommendations. Topics: Statistics, in emergencies, returnees and reconstruction, gender, life skills and conflict prevention, vocational training, and distance learning and ICT.

The Honorary Guests included Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand as well as Ms. Mary Ann Wyrsch, the Deputy UN High Commissioner for Refugees.
