Microhistoire et histoire sociale - Casa de Velázquez Presentation Microstoria first appeared at the turn of the 1970s and 1980s, from within a small group of Italian historians, in reaction to a social history that was marked by structuralist and functionalist models. It can be defined, not as a historiographical ‘school’ that promotes a unified method, but rather as an experimental research practice, characterised by varied approaches that all have the micro-level as a common point of interest. This history ‘at ground-level’ (J. gatesfoundation what’s the challenge? By 2050, the estimated number of young people entering the labor force in Africa will exceed that of the rest of the world combined. The collective talent, effort, and potential of these young people represent an incredible opportunity for Africa and the world – but if neglected, could lead to further inequality and global security risks, while eroding the critical progress made towards achieving the SDGs by 2030. This Accelerator brings us to Kenya, where hundreds of thousands of young people are entering the workforce every year – largely in the informal economy. This diverse, ever-evolving sector is where 83% of Kenyans work – as motorbike couriers, vendors of day-to-day goods in small roadside kiosks, running small-scale restaurants, selling street food, and a vast array of other ventures. This complex myriad of challenges disproportionately impacts young Kenyans who tend to dominate this space.

Standards and Methodologies The UIS has developed several mechanisms to help countries implement sound statistical practices and apply international definitions and standards. The Data Quality Assessment Framework (DQAF) is designed to improve the quality of national education statistics. It entails an in-depth review of the ways in which a country produces education statistics, as well as an action plan for improvements. The DQAF is primarily being applied in African countries with the help of national statisticians and regional partners, namely UNESCO’s Regional Bureau for Education in Dakar (BREDA) and the Southern African Development Community (SADC). Data plans are designed to help countries apply international standards when transforming national data into international data that are reported to the UIS. The UIS works closely with national statisticians to precisely document the ways in which national data sources are used to complete the UIS international education survey.

What is the role of the UIS? In response to this global learning crisis, the UIS is working with partners to help provide the technical guidance, methodologies and statistical information needed to monitor and improve the learning outcomes of all children. The increased focus on learning outcomes is leading many countries to undertake new initiatives or improve existing assessments. Yet despite the importance – and controversy – attached to learning assessments, there is little information available to help countries make informed decisions in this area.
