Boosting opportunities for Higher Education in Emergencies
This side event brought together governments, UN agencies, humanitarian organizations, academia
and youth affected by humanitarian crises to promote the role of high-level education in crises
situations. As stated in the draft outcome document for the 19th September High-level UN Summit, in crises situations, higher education protects a critical group of young men and women, helps to build self-reliance, fosters inclusion and non-discrimination and provides a foundation for the rebuilding of war-torn societies.
Organized by the Permanent Mission of Qatar
