Take part in a GEM Report workshop to discover our latest SDG 4 monitoring tool - PEER

The GEM Report team invites you to join in a one-hour virtual workshop to learn about its new online monitoring tool, Profiles Enhancing Education Reviews (PEER). PEER presents comparable, systematic and up-to date information on national education laws and policies on selected topics. The profiles contain two chapters so far. The first covers inclusion in education, the theme of the 2020 GEM Report. The second chapter covers equitable finance, with additional chapters on non-state actors and climate change also under preparation.  

Join us to explore the use of PEER as an essential tool for comparative research on policies and legislation on issues central to achieving SDG 4.  

Register for the virtual workshop on Wednesday 2 June, 15:00-16:00 CEST/09:00-10:00 EDT 

On the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia we released a new policy paper on LGBTQI exclusion in education

The policy paper 45 titled ‘Don’t look away’ was launched jointly with the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer & Intersex Youth and Student Organisation (IGLYO) on the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia with new survey findings and analysis showing unacceptably high levels of discrimination and harassment in education. The paper was launched at the Global Conference on Promoting the Rights and Inclusion of LGBTI+ Youth in Paris, co-hosted by the Mouvement d’Affirmation des Jeunes Gais, Lesbiennes, Bi & Trans (MAG), Out Right Action International, the Mairie de Paris and the Austrian Government. It was attended by Anne Hidalgo, the Mayor of Paris, as well as three French Ministers of Foreign Affairs (Jean-Yves Le Drian), Education (Jean-Michel Blanquer), and Gender Equality, Diversity and Equal Opportunities (Elisabeth Moreno), as well as Wendy Morton, Minister for European Neighbourhood and the Americas in the United Kingdom.
