The Role of Humanitarian Actors in Safeguarding Access to Education – Workshop Report – Geneva, 19–20 June 2019
This report summarizes discussions held at a workshop on the role of humanitarian actors in safeguarding access to education, which took place at the ICRC’s headquarters in Geneva from 19 to 20 June 2019. It outlines some of the challenges and approaches to supporting access to education in highly politicized and fragmented environments and in places where education systems are severely and chronically under-resourced. The workshop was jointly organized by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and Education Above All Foundation (EAA), through its Protect Education in Insecurity and Conflict (PEIC) programme. It brought together a range of participants with humanitarian and development experience, including staff from the ICRC and other components of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, education experts and donors.
