The State of Education in Syria

When USAID’s Middle East Bureau asked RTI’s international education team to assess what has been happening to formal education in Syria during the ongoing tragic conflict, I was happy to raise my hand and take on this task.

The Refugee Crises in Africa and Europe: We Are All in It Together

I grew up in Germany, in a village outside Stuttgart. It’s a pretty traditional area where most people know each other and most speak Swabian, a German dialect that is almost impossible to understand for the un-indoctrinated.
