at Geneva Global Hub for Education in Emergencies
Published September 4, 2022
Location Geneva, Switzerland
Category Finance  
Job Type Full Time  




Faced with the under-prioritization and underfunding of education in emergencies (EiE), and given the magnitude of the challenge, the members of the Geneva Global Hub for Education in Emergencies (EiE Hub) - with INEE being one of the original co-signatories and the co-chair of the Steering Group - have come together to form an alliance of like-minded states and organizations to step up awareness of, political and operational dedication to, and funding for EiE. Their objective is to break down existing silos and harness the potential that International Geneva offers to effect change for EiE. They will do so by catalyzing joint action, promoting policy dialogue, and facilitating multi-stakeholder alliances and partnerships. This will add to ensuring the continuity and delivery of safe, quality education for crisis-affected children and youth.
