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

INEE Steering Group


In consultation with the wider membership and within the outline of the INEE Strategic Plan, the INEE Steering Group sets goals and plans for the network, approves new working groups and task teams, and provides strategic guidance to the Secretariat staff.

The INEE Steering Group is composed of organizational members, represented by senior professionals in the field of education in emergencies. Steering Group members are all equal in status, and no one Steering Group member may make decisions for INEE in his/her own individual capacity.

Steering Group organizations commit to support INEE with monetary and in-kind contributions, including travel to two annual Steering Group meetings and hosting of meetings. In addition to attending two Steering Group meetings per year, representatives give substantial time reviewing and providing strategic input on INEE activities. For more details about the INEE Steering Group, please refer to the INEE By-Laws document.
