Higher education should be a priority in humanitarian crises


It is higher education that will produce the leaders of the future and skilled workforce that countries need to move forward after crisis and conflict. This is why it is urgent to prioritise higher education in the handling of humanitarian crises and emergencies. 

If we fail to do it, we will be responsible for rendering entire generations uneducated, developmentally disadvantaged and unprepared to contribute to their society’s recovery. Furthermore, we will be contributing to fuelling people’s despair, grief, rage and victimization, all seeds and water for extremism.
