Urban Refugee Education Roundtable - Oct 3 in DC

The roundtable is hosted by USAID ECCN, Teachers College, Columbia University, and the Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) and will bring together 100 diverse and distinguished actors representing almost 50 organizations such as the United Nations, non-governmental organizations, universities, donor agencies and other stakeholders. The goal is to critically reflect on what we know and don’t know about urban refugee education. A combination of panel presentations and lightning talks will be followed by critical reflections and dialogue to help shape a collaborative agenda for research, policy and practice.

If you RSVP’d and have not received your ticket by tonight, please contact us at If you have not RSVP’d and are interested in attending, please contact USAID ECCN to confirm whether there is space. For organizations attending the roundtable, the agenda and other information pertaining to the event can be found on our event website.
