iciHaiti - UNESCO: An UEH professor from, one of the laureates of an international competition on the futures of education

Professor Obrillant Damus of the State University of Haiti is one of the laureates of the international competition organized by UNESCO to select the authors of a report on the futures of education.

Its 21-page proposal (with an extended introduction accompanied by a development plan in French) produced in less than 15 days, was selected to be developed as a reference document for the Futures of Education initiative.

“[…] We received nearly 540 submissions from all regions of the world, a response rate well beyond our expectations. After careful evaluation of the proposals, we are happy to confirm that your proposal has been accepted for further development as a background document for the Futures of Education initiative. Thank you for responding to UNESCO’s request for information materials for the Futures of Education initiative […]” UNESCO wrote in an email to break the news to Damus .

Note that Professor Damus from the UEH is the only French-speaking author whose name appears on the list of laureates (#60), the majority of whom belong to major universities (University of Melbourne, University of Glasgow, University of South Africa , University of Cambridge, Harvard, Univesity of Glasgow, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign…)

Anthropologist, author and co-authors of several books, Damus was able to carry the torch of the UEH to the highest level by being one of the winners of this great international competition.

The State University of Haiti congratulates Professor Damus on this achievement and wishes him well for the future.

UNESCO’s report on competition results will be published in November 2021.
