Refugee Education: Challenges and Opportunities Going Forward

1st program of


Critical Conversations on Refugee and Migrant Education:

Toward Commitment and Concrete Action


The coronavirus pandemic has upended educational systems and practices worldwide, but for refugees and migrants the pandemic exposed just how desperate their already difficult plight has truly become. Over the next several months, the Refugee & Migrant Education Network will be hosting a series of conversations about issues within refugee education.

In this first program,  Dr. Grandi and Professor Reimers will focus on the realities and challenges of educating displaced people around the world.

Following their remarks, members of RME Network—both administrators as well as refugees themselves—will join the conversation to present their projects and challenges they face in their work.

Attendees will be able to SUBMIT QUESTIONS for Dr. Grandi and Dr. Reimers prior to the event for the Q&A portion of the program.

Future programs will explore

•Reimagining innovation in a time of global uncertainty;

•Educating university students about refugees and migrants;

•Developing effective partnerships advancing educational access to displaced persons.
