In fact, refugees are one of the best investments out there.For refugees, education performs the same functions, but also does much more.In its latest annual report on refugee education, the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) finds that gains in educational enrollment have extended life-changing opportunities to tens of thousands of refugee children, adolescents and youth. Most notably, the share of refugees accessing higher education has reached 3 percent, after being stuck at 1 percent for the past several years.In addition to SDG 4 (to "ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all"), global commitments to eradicate poverty, promote decent work and reduce inequality will also be imperiled.It is thus imperative that refugee children be included in national education systems, where they can acquire recognized certifications. Through education, young refugees will be more prepared to help build a resilient, sustainable and peaceful world.
