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

Global Consultation 2009


31 March-2 April, 2009, Istanbul, Turkey

The Event

2009 Global Consultation delegates at the opening plenary session in Istanbul, Turkey.
The third of its kind, this dynamic and forward-looking forum was our largest gathering yet, bringing together more than 250 practitioners, researchers and policymakers from national and international NGOs, UN agencies, multilateral institutions, government agencies, Ministries of Education, teachers unions, academic institutions and youth groups to explore emerging developments in the field of education in emergencies, chronic crises and early recovery.

The INEE Global Consultation was a face-to-face opportunity for INEE members and partners to:

  • Collaboratively explore emerging issues in the fast-changing field of education in emergencies, chronic crisis and early recovery
  • Share experiences, tools and innovative approaches to programming, advocacy, policy development and research
  • Network with policymakers, teachers, leaders from the humanitarian and education communities, and fellow INEE members
  • Identify key challenges and gaps in programming and policy, and devise a strategy for moving forward, based on recommendations for meeting those challenges


The Programme


Through a series of concurrent workshop sessions, this Global Consultation provided a unique opportunity for INEE members and partners to meet, learn from each other and move forward issues of common concern by sharing good practices and common challenges in order to strengthen our collective efforts to bridge the gaps between risk reduction, relief and recovery and meet the Education for All goals.
