Exploring ways to shift disadvantage through education
This program focuses on children and young adults at risk of not fulfilling their potential because of:
- socio-economic circumstances
- challenges such as autism and disability
- mental and emotional upheaval including trauma and displacement
- discrimination on the grounds of race, ethnicity, migration status, gender and age.
The program also focuses on educational policy and the enactment of such policies at international, national and local levels.
