Reshaping the International Education Agenda to Include Youth in Situations of Fragility and Crisis

Youth education in general, and more specifically youth education in crisis contexts, is not clearly represented in the current development agenda (MDGs and EFA). With consultations on-going regarding the post-2015 development agenda, it is now time for all concerned stakeholders to position themselves within the current debate and identify missing issues.

As millions of youth live in areas of conflict, post conflict, violence and disasters, collective outlining of the real needs in the field and advocating for their inclusion in the post-2015 education agenda, through clear priorities, is essential. Securing youth’s right to quality, inclusive and relevant education in e

mergency and fragile contexts is essential to protect them as well as to help them rebuild their communities.This position paper outlines how the post-2015 goals are being shaped, it identifies the progress already made in relation to youth education in fragility and crisis and highlights the remaining gaps. Its purpose was to lay the foundations for the discussions held during the INEE-RET Round Table held on 15 October 2013.
