Because of increasing conflicts, there has been a rise in the numbers of migrants and refugees; so this virtual event will mainly focus on the importance of national education programs and policies that can support inclusive education for migrants and refugees. This is even more relevant now as access to social services during the pandemic have been halted and discrimination has been worsened. The speakers at the panel will share good practices in education to help contribute to preventing further discrimination and rupture of the social fabric.
