Expanding Durable Solutions for Refugee Youth through Higher Education

20 September 2021

The Global Task Force on Third Country Education Pathways (GTF) will host a series of virtual sessions entitled “Expanding Durable Solutions for Refugee Youth through Higher Education”. EUA is a partner in the network.

The series will launch a Global Community of Practice (CoP), share knowledge, and build the capacity of state entities, post-secondary education institutions, associations, foundations, NGOs, INGOs, refugee networks and other stakeholders to design and implement legal pathways for refugee youth through higher education programmes in third countries.

Sessions will take place between October and December. While sessions can be taken separately, we recommend that stakeholders who are interested in joining the CoP and implementing and/or expanding higher education pathways for refugees commit to attending all sessions. Sessions will be recorded, and recordings will be shared with everyone registered for the series.
