    The right to education of people on the move: UNESCO calls on Latin American and Caribbean countries to provide answers beyond migratory emergency responses
    The conclusions of the regional forum “Education beyond borders: Regional solidarity for the guarantee of the right to education for people on the move” were released by UNESCO on October 17, 2019.
