"Including the Excluded" and International Development Co-Operation. A Report from the Meeting of the International Working Group on Education (IWGE) (Lisbon, Portugal, June 19-21, 2001).
The International Working Group on Education (IWGE) met in Lisbon, Portugal, in November 2001. Participants came from 26 institutions representing 10 international agencies or institutions, 4 foundations, and 12 bilateral agencies. This publication is a summary of the proceedings of that meeting. It begins with opening and welcoming keynote addresses. Each subsequent chapter is devoted to a summary of a major theme of the meeting. Theme 1 gave representatives of the various institutions the opportunity to brief the meeting on any significant changes, actual or prospective, in policy, organization, and working procedures since the previous meeting. Theme 2 focused on measures to ensure that groups often denied or excluded from educational opportunities gain access to them. The discussion also examined ways of alleviating the cost of education for the poor. Theme 3 surveyed experiences and issues in effect to establish sector-wide approaches to developing policies and programs in education as well as progress in enabling countries to reduce their debt burden and devote more resources to education and health. Theme 4 focused on the effects, implications, and prognosis of the HIV/AIDS emergency and the challenges it poses for education policy and action. (WFA)
