Millions of children around the world experience gender-based violence (GBV) in and around schools. It’s a global crisis in which too many schools are anything but the safe and supportive learning environments they need to be for students to obtain a quality education. Rather, they are violent spaces from which young people, especially girls, are fleeing.

As part of the 2018 EU-hosted Development Days conference, UNGEI participated in a panel discussion entitled ‘Eliminating gender-based violence in and around schools and other educational settings: Establishing and sustaining partnership approaches to eliminating gender-based violence in and around schools and other education settings’. Educationists representing a range of education-focused organizations shared experiences and expertise in approaches to tackling school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV). Each spoke of a common resolve to shine a light on the gravity of the issue and the responsibility all stakeholders share in working together to root it out.
