High-Level Event on Conflict-Sensitive Education
13 March 2013
Dear INEE Members,
UNESCO-IIEP and INEE through its Working Group on Education and Fragility are co-organizing a High-Level Symposium on Conflict-Sensitive Education – Why and How? to be held on 8 April 2013 at UNESCO’s Headquarters in Paris (Room II)

The symposium will bring together some 100 to 150 high-level participants representing ministries of education and other government bodies, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, UN agencies, bilateral development organizations, the private sector, civil society organizations, as well as leading national and international agencies promoting education in emergency and fragile contexts.

The symposium will see the launch of the INEE harmonized approach and tools to introduce conflict sensitivity in education policies, programmes and investment. The participants are expected to endorse a Common Framework for prioritizing conflict-sensitive education in crisis-affected countries, and for the further mobilization of all key stakeholders around concerted actions to help these countries achieve Education for All targets and the MDGs. 
The symposium will be followed by a cocktail and a concert by Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary for children affected by violence around the world. 
Attendance to the symposium is by invitation only.  However, if you are interested to attend on behalf of your organization, please send us an email to with your full name, organization you represent and your interest in the symposium, and you will receive an invitation shortly.  Please note that funding to attend the symposium will not be provided.
