UNESCO IESALC’s participation in #WHEC2022 | Round Table: What would it take to ensure access to higher education for all?

19 May, 2022 hora: 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Within the framework of the UNESCO World Higher Education Conference 2022, UNESCO IESALC will take part in the Round Table: What would it take to ensure access to higher education for all? at 9:30-11:00 (Spain time) on May 19, 2022.

Participation in higher education around the world has increased exponentially since the second half of the twentieth century. Since 2000, the global gross enrolment rate has almost doubled from 19% to 38% and in some regions the increase has been even sharper. Yet wide disparities in access continue to exist, as do barriers to successful completion of studies for those students who make it into higher education. Building on a series of regional and thematic consultation meetings on the right to higher education convened by UNESCO’s International Institute for Higher Education in Latin America & the Caribbean with UNESCO partners during April and May 2022, this ministerial level plenary brings together senior government officials from all world regions to discuss what it would take to ensure access to higher education for all.


  • Verónica Figueroa Huencho, Under Secretary of Higher Education of Chile.
  • Diaka Sidibe, Minister of Higher Education, Scientific Research and Innovation of Guinea.
  • Ibrahim Hassan, Minister of Higher Education of Maldives.


Francesc Pedró, UNESCO IESALC director.
