The Global Education Monitoring Report (or GEM Report), formerly known as the Education for All Global Monitoring Report (GMR), is an editorially independent, authoritative and evidence-based annual report that monitors progress towards global education targets adopted by UN member states as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (September 2015). The GEM Report is funded by a group of governments, multilateral agencies and private foundations and published annually by UNESCO to serve the international community. It is widely recognized as an indispensable analytical and advocacy tool for ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning for all.
With a renewed mandate from the World Education Forum in May 2015, the GEM Report team launched a new series of internationally focused education monitoring reports in 2016. The 2016 GEM Report, Education for People and Planet: Creating Sustainable Futures for All, examined the links between education and major facets of sustainable development. It developed the framework to monitor progress towards the fourth global education goal (SDG4), as well as other global targets with an education focus. The second report, to be launched in October 2017, is tentatively titled Accountability in education: Meeting our commitments. It will examine the most common accountability approaches and whether and how they contribute to the aims of the global education goals: access, quality, equity and inclusion.
This concept note discusses the 2019 GEM Report on migration and education, as approved by the GEM Report International Advisory Board in June 2016.
Migration and education are multifaceted processes involving individuals, schools, communities, regions and countries. They invoke temporal, spatial and intergenerational dimensions. The 2019 GEM Report will enhance understanding of migration and education dynamics. It will give voice to educational challenges and opportunities facing both voluntary and involuntary migrants in host and home communities. It will draw upon wide-ranging evidence from both quantitative and qualitative studies, and the analyses, conclusions and recommendations will advance the aims of SDG4.
