Policy Tools

The SEG Project is developing concrete policy tools based on aspirational indicators to help identify governance gaps and support countries in strategic education governance.


Learning Seminars

SEG Learning Seminars apply OECD's insights on strategic education governance to specific policy challenges. Education systems can draw lessons for governance practice by contrasting and comparing their approaches and the challenges they face.
