Promoting access to quality, safe, and relevant education for all persons affected by crisis

INEE Working Group on Minimum Standards 2009-2011

INEE established a Working Group on Minimum Standards to oversee the development of the standards in 2003-2004. A second Working Group on Minimum Standards for 2005-2009 was constituted to oversee the promotion, training, analysis and implementation of the INEE Minimum Standards. Based on INEE members’ feedback and a recommendation by the INEE Working Group (2005-2009) at its final meeting, the INEE Steering Group endorsed the proposal to establish a new Working Group on Minimum Standards for 2009-2011 with a renewed mandate and reconstituted membership.
