Mission and Vision

Our purpose as the Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) is to serve as an open global network of members working together within a humanitarian and development framework to ensure all people the right to quality and safe education in emergencies and post-crisis recovery.

INEE envisions a world where:
  • all people affected by crisis and instability have access to quality, relevant and safe  education opportunities;
  • education services are integrated into all emergency interventions as an essential life-saving and life-sustaining component of humanitarian response;
  • governments and donors provide sustainable funding and develop holistic policies to ensure education preparedness, crisis prevention, mitigation, response and recovery;
  • all education programmes responding to emergencies, chronic crises and reconstruction are consistent with the INEE Minimum Standards and accountable for quality and results.

The three steps include understanding the conflict context, analyzing the two-way interaction between the conflict context and the education programmes, and acting to minimize negative impacts and maximize positive impacts of education policies on conflict.
