In times of crisis, however, millions of displaced young people miss out on months or years of education, and this is damaging to them and their families, as well as to their societies, both in the short and long term.

FMR 60 contains 29 articles on ‘Education: needs, rights and access in displacement’, plus two ‘general’ articles on other topics. See more at: www.fmreview.org/education-displacement.
