The aim of the study is to review literature concerning education for children from mobile populations and investigate experiences from ongoing or past education programmes for primary-school children from mobile populations through semi-structured interviews with a range of education professionals around the world. Commissioned by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) – on behalf of BMZ (German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development) – and Educate A Child (EAC), the study intends to inform programming, contribute to knowledge building and feed into policy dialogue and advocacy. Its main intended audiences are education practitioners, who are looking for a summary of some of the many challenges faced by mobile children and/or examples of effective and cost-effective strategies and approaches. The study is also likely to be useful for researchers, education experts and political decision makers.
