Refugee education: A long-term investment
This PRIO policy brief examines investment in refugee education and argues that a substantial shift is needed that enables long-term investment in educating children in protracted refugee situations.
The amount of humanitarian aid allocated to education doubled between 2015 and 2018 and Norway has reached the global goal of allocating 4% of their humanitarian aid to the sector.
Save the Children Norway released this updated report on financing for education in emergencies between 2015 and 2018 . The Report was co-authored by Peace Research Institute (PRIO) researchers Kendra Dupuy, Julia Palik, and Gudrun Østby.
Among the key findings was that although there has been a general increase in humanitarian funding for education since 2014, education remains under-funded within humanitarian appeals.
Four countries received half of all humanitarian aid for education between 2015 and 2018: Syria, Yemen, South Sudan, and Iraq. These were also among the worst humanitarian disasters during this time period.
