A panel of experts will attempt to define what role the United States and the international community should play in reforming the basic education systems in Pakistan and Afghanistan, addressing the special challenge of reaching girls in this region.
Participants will examine policies that have been most effective in dismantling barriers to education in other developing nations and discuss the strategies they believe should be adapted for promoting universal education in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
This discussion is the latest in a series of conferences sponsored by the Brookings Forum on Universal Education, directed by Gene Sperling.
