Countries follow different paths to achieve their education targets. Having access to comparable information on choices made in different systems can enrich education planners' and decision makers' perspectives on how to overcome their challenges. Systematic and comprehensive information on national education legislation, policies and programmes on issues central to achieving SDG 4, our global education goal, is necessary to inform policy dialogue at sub-regional, regional and international levels.

Profiles Enhancing Education Reviews (PEER)

These Profiles Enhancing Education Reviews (PEER) aim to describe all countries’ laws and policies on key themes in education so as to improve the evidence base on the implementation of national education strategies. The profiles are related to the theme of the Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report and are prepared by its team. Government validation of the content is being sought and each profile indicates whether such a validation has been obtained.

The profiles contain two chapters so far, the first covering inclusion in education, the theme of the 2020 GEM Report. The second chapter covers equitable finance, made available in January, 2021 and analysed in a policy paper. An additional chapter will cover the provision and regulation of non-state actors in education, the theme of the 2021 GEM Report, in December, 2021. Subsequent chapters also in development will cover gender equality and climate change education.
