Equitas education was commissioned in 2022 by Save the Children, UNICEF, and the World Food Programme, to carry out a study on out-of-school children in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, covering 2015-2020.
The study’s focus countries are Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Palestine, Turkey, and Yemen over the years 2015-2020. The study focuses on four specific areas of inquiry:
- Documenting the main trends of OOSC.
- Analysing the barriers and motivating factors that prevent or facilitate children’s participation and retention in education.
- Understanding the nature of policies and programmes in the study areas.
- Recommending specific areas for further study and potential responses.
