Hosted by Education International (EI) affiliate Lararforbundet at the Teachers’ House in Stockholm on 21-22 November 2016, the conference “Providing Education to Refugee Children from Conflict Areas in the Middle East - Fast track to Equal Opportunities and Integration,” looked to develop concrete and actionable solutions that unions, schools, and teachers can implement in refugee host and transit countries.

The background paper of the conference (available in English and Arabic) provides in-depth information concerning forced migration worldwide, related global and regional initiatives as well as challenges confronting schools in host and transit countries.
