Abstract
Our Higher Education programme (HES) is premised on furthering the basic rights of Syrian and Palestinian youth affected by the crisis or occupation to enable them to enjoy access to higher education and empowerment opportunities. With hundreds of thousands of Syrian youths applying for only handful overseas scholarships, new regional approaches are much needed to scale up access to higher education, particularly in Syria’s neighbouring countries (Turkey, Lebanon, Palestine and Jordan). In this working session we will focus on the implementation of this programme and the challenges we face.
