With conflicts around the world driving people to seek asylum from violence and persecution, Education International is bringing together teacher unions, governments and civil society organisations to address the link between education and integration.

Participants from 46 different countries are set to convene in Sweden to exchange information and experiences, identify challenges and good practices at system and classroom levels, and recommend policies and strategies to ensure access to quality education to all refugee and migrant children.

Hosted by Education International (EI) affiliate Lararforbundet at the Teachers’ House in Stockholm, the conference, “Providing Education to Refugee Children from Conflict Areas in the Middle East – Fast track to Equal Opportunities and Integration,” looks to develop concrete and actionable solutions that unions, schools, and teachers can implement in refugee host and transit countries.

“The purpose of this conference is, firstly, to explore ways to ensure access of refugee and forcibly displaced children to our national school systems, and, secondly, to discuss the professional challenges at the school and classroom levels,” reads an excerpt from the remarks of EI General Secretary Fred van Leeuwen.
