NISSEM is committed to assisting education authorities in low- or middle-income, conflict-affected and post-conflict settings to advance the UN SDG goal for quality education. In particular, NISSEM focuses on all themes listed in Target 4.7, which incorporates, elevates and expands long-standing international commitments to education for positive behavioral and societal transformation.
NISSEM co-conveners Margaret Sinclair and Andy Smart will co-present with Global Briefs contributor Matthew Jukes of RTI, with discussants including other UK-based contributors.
RTI International and NISSEM will host a panel discussion examining recent donor policies on SEL and the NISSEM Global Briefs.
