Rethinking Higher Education for Syrian Refugees in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey

Date:
Wednesday 26 February 2020
Time:
1.00pm - 2.00pm
Venue:
N44

Within the MENA region, more than 5,000,000 Syrian refugees are currently registered with UNHCR. Amongst university-aged refugees, only a small fraction (Jordan – 8%, Lebanon – 6%, Turkey – 1%) are currently enrolled in higher education.

This paper, based on empirical qualitative research with Syrian refugee youth, is a critical investigation into their access to, and experiences with, higher education opportunities provided for them by local and international partners.

This event is free to attend.
