The Global Task Force on Third Country Education Pathways, which UNIMED is a member of, would like to call further attention to the plight of Afghan refugee youth, especially young women, who are facing an uncertain future with limited opportunities to continue their education. The members of the Global Task Force stand united in their conviction that this is a critical moment to support these young Afghans in accessing safe pathways with secure legal status and protection safeguards in other countries through higher education programmes.
The Global Task Force on Third Country Education Pathways (GTF) promotes and supports the expansion of tertiary education as a complementary pathway for refugee students. Increasing the number of higher education pathways will not only help grow the number of refugees enrolled in higher education to 15% by 2030, as set forth in the Refugee Education 2030: A Strategy for Refugee Inclusion, but also help meet the ambitious goals of The Three-Year Strategy (2019-2021) on Resettlement and Complementary Pathways.
