IIE-SRF Partners with Al-Fanar Media to Organize Workshop on Syrian Access to Higher Education
Al-Fanar Media recently posted on its website a report that resulted from a workshop it co-organized with IIE and the Dutch NGO SPARK. The workshop, "Delivering Higher Education to Syrian Refugees," took place in Istanbul, Turkey on October 6 and 7 of this year. The event brought together stakeholders from regional and international governments, UN bodies, local and international NGOs, universities, and Syrian students and professors, to share best practices and enhance coordination amongst initiatives that are supporting Syrian access to higher education within the countries hosting large numbers of refugees. IIE-SRFâ€™s Celine Taminian and James King participated, and Mr. King was interviewed for a video about the event that also features many IIE and IIE-SRF partners. Building on the workshopâ€™s success, another event likely will be convened in March 2016.
