Dr. Lawrence Aber awarded €1,226,801 grant from private donor

Dr. Lawrence Aber, co-Director of NYU's Global TIES for Children (TIES), and Carly Tubbs Dolan, Senior Adviser for Crisis-Affected Countries, recently received a grant from a private donor in the amount of €1,226,801. The award supports a new initiative within the "Education in Emergencies: Evidence for Action" (3EA) partnership between the International Rescue Committee and TIES that will design, test, and build capacity to use high-quality measurement tools and methods in humanitarian settings. 3EA: Measurement and Metrics will do so by convening a consortium of research-practice partnerships in the Middle East/North Africa and Turkey (MENAT) region to make coordinated progress on a regional Education in Emergencies research agenda.
