Education plays an incredibly life-sustaining and protective role during conflict and crisis and there are serious social and economic consequences to ignore education during displacement for both host and home countries alike. Today, only 3 percent of refugees have access to higher education, mainly because 85 percent of refugees live in developing countries that already struggle with over-stretched education systems. The need to innovative solutions, open and inclusive societies is now much more needed than ever due to the increasing number of people forced to flee and find safety across borders.
