formerly known as the Education and Fragility Working Group
In early 2008, the INEE Education Policy Working Group was established as an inter-agency mechanism to coordinate diverse initiatives and catalyze collaborative action on issues relating to education policy in fragile contexts. In 2016, the Working Group changed its name from the Education and Fragility Working Group to the Education Policy Working Group to reflect the breadth of the focus.

The 2014-2017 Education Policy Working Group is currently focusing on four thematic areas related to education in fragile and crisis-affected contexts; Psychosocial Support (PSS) and Social-Emotional Learning (SEL), Conflict-Sensitive Education (CSE), Preventing Violent Extremism, and, broadly, education for populations affected by forced displacement.
The 2011-2014 Working Group on Education and Fragility undertook activities that contributed towards the achievement of the INEE goal for 2011-2013 – the provision of quality, safe and relevant education for all is strengthened in crisis and crisis-prone contexts through prevention, preparedness, response and recovery. The goal of the Working Group was to contribute to crisis-sensitive education in fragile and conflict-affected contexts through inter-agency collaboration at global, regional, and country levels. During the Working Group's fourth binannual meeting in April 2013 in Paris, France, it was decided that the Working Group will extend its mandate by one year, until September 2014.
Among its many achievements, the Working Group has produced country reports, frameworks, guidelines and tools, which currently inform donors, policymakers, practioners, educators, researchers, and other stakeholders in their work related to education and fragility. These key resources are also piloted and utilized by Working Group Members within their organizations' activities on education and fragility.
