Beyond the battlefield: The impact of conflict on girls' education

Nov 29, 2023 | 8:20 AM - 9:00 AM



Plenary (In-Person & Online)

Girls are particularly vulnerable in conflict situations, as they face greater barriers to accessing education compared to boys. This can hinder the progress towards achieving gender equality. In light of these challenges, what measures can be taken to ensure that girls have equal access to education during times of conflict?
