[Advocacy] The Global Convention on Higher Education will enter into force in early 2023

Imagine a world where students can easily move around and cross borders to pursue their studies. With the imminent entry into force of the Global Convention in 2023, this goal will be closer than ever.

On 5 December 2022, the Global Convention on the Recognition of Qualifications concerning Higher Education welcomed its 19th and 20th ratifications when two Member States, Iceland and Andorra, deposited their instruments of ratification. With a total number of 20 ratifications, UNESCO and its Member States mark a decisive turning point on the road to more inclusive and equitable higher education for all when the Global Convention enters into force and becomes legally binding for its States Parties in the early months of the new year 2023.
