Abstract

In 2015, global society through the voice of the United Nations (UN) announced the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Among 17 goals of the Agenda, Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 10 aims at reducing inequality. One of the targets is to facilitate orderly, safe, regular and responsible migration and mobility of people. Moreover, within SDG 4, the global community has called for inclusive and equitable quality education and the promotion of lifelong learning opportunities for all. In both developed and developing countries, migrants and the displaced are in vulnerable situations. How to ensure equal access to all levels of education and vocational training for them has become a priority for governments in both destination and origin areas. Following the global commitments of the SDGs, in 2016, the UN endorsed the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, which includes addressing the establishment of a responsibility-sharing mechanism to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for migrant children and youth.
