Revisiting the Two Faces of Education in Conflict: Implications for Education Materials

Bush and Saltarelli (2000) told us that there are two faces of education in ethnic conflict – education grievances and structural features that can act as drivers of conflict, and education policies that can build connectors and promote peace. Many countries face new and divisive tensions as economic and other forces impact unevenly on different ethnic, linguistic, religious and other groups, leading to instability and sometimes armed conflict.

Alternative Education in DRC: A Path to Reach Out-of-School Children and Youth

775 million children and youth in 35 conflict-affected countries are left behind in the global drive towards Education for All. The human, social, and economic costs are staggering, not least since these young people are at risk for recruitment into gangs and insurgent militias, and for girls, early forced marriages and sexual trafficking.

The global initiative Education Cannot Wait is based on the recognition that assuring education for these children and youth requires a shift in approaches to provide a path back into education for those excluded as a consequence of crisis and conflict. Read more  »
