Call for Contributions to 2021 GEMR
GEMR’s stated intent with the 2021 report is to “broaden the conversation” on non-state actors. We have been talking to the GEMR Team through the second-half of 2019 to understand how GSF can best contribute for the 2021 report. The GEMR Director also participated in our GSF Member session at the UKFIET conference in September last year.
We encourage you to get involved in the GEMR consultation process in the following 4 ways:
Join the consultation on the 2021 GEM Report on non-state actors in education
Few topics in education generate as much passion as the role of non-state actors. While everyone wants to achieve the goal of providing quality education for all, who delivers it, who is engaged, and how they are engaged is a subject of much debate. Non-state activity in education has a variety of motivations, from charity to profit. Activities may or may not involve collaboration with the government, debate abounds as to whether the role of non-state actors should be encouraged or contained. Public opinion on non-state actors displays generational shifts that vary between countries.
Earlier this week we released the concept note and opened the online consultation on the 2021 Global Education Monitoring Report on non-state actors in education, which will monitor the situation, inform and advance research, and provide policy recommendations.
The 2021 GEM Report is an opportunity for providing evidence-based research that can provide clarity on the role of non-state actors in achieving progress towards SDG 4.
For the first time we are also opening a call for expressions of interest to contribute to the Report with research. You may submit an expression of interest for a paper in 10 areas identified by the Report team and also to make your own suggestion. To take part, please follow our guidelines and send us an abstract of no longer than 300 words describing the importance, scope, methodology, research and evidence that your contribution would provide. The deadline for the contributions is 24 January. Successful applicants will be notified by 14 February 2020.
