Promoting access to quality, safe, and relevant education for all persons affected by crisis

EiE Thematic Areas

As a field of work, education in emergencies (EiE) encompasses a wide range of thematic areas relevant to the delivery of education in crisis contexts.

The thematic areas listed below are some of the most important in EiE work, and they represent much of the core activities of the INEE network, past and present. Each title links to a webpage with the most up-to-date and relevant content about the thematic area, from a global perspective. Included on each page is background information, definitions, statistics, messages, activities, resources, and, of course, links to the latest and greatest content on the theme - all of this within a roughly 2-pager format!

We encourage you to use and share these pages widely.
