We live in a world in which 28 million children have been driven from their homes as a result of conflict, persecution and insecurity. If current trends continue, more than 63 million children could be forced to flee by 2025, of which over 25 million will cross borders and become refugees. At least 300,000 of these child refugees will end up alone, separated from their families. Without a step-change in the provision of education for refugee children, at least 12 million of them will be out of school by 2025.

This report has drawn attention to the unfolding crisis facing children forced to flee. The humanitarian system is already failing displaced children in many cases – with chronic under-funding of emergency responses in the countries of origin of millions of displaced and refugee children, and consistent deprioritisation of education and protection.Without a step-change in the way the international community deals with children on the move, the problem risks spiralling out of control.
