    Save the Children urges 'new deal' for child refugees

    May 16, London: Save the Children is calling for greater international commitment to ensure child refugees remain in school, saying no child should be out of school fore more than a month.

    The Save the Children’s new report, “A New Deal for Refugees,” says no child should be out of school. It comes as countries struggle to respond to a huge displacement of people fleeing conflict and hardship.

    Another call for a greater response to the crisis will be made on Monday by the Special Envoy for the UN Refugee Agency, Angelina Jolie-Pitt, reports said.

    Jolie-Pitt, as well as a former head of MI6, Sir Richard Dearlove, will be speaking at the BBC during a day of special live coverage examining how an age of unprecedented mobility is shaping our world.

    BBC News World On The Move is a day of coverage dedicated to migration, and the changing effect it is having on our world.

    A range of speakers, including the UNHCR's special envoy Angelina Jolie Pitt, and former British secret intelligence chief Sir Richard Dearlove, will set out the most important new ideas shaping our thinking on economic development, security and humanitarian assistance, BBC news reported.
