Overview: The Peacebuilding, Education, and Advocacy (PBEA) programme in Ethiopia aims to strengthen resilience and social cohesion and improve equity in Ethiopia’s four Developing Regional States (DRS)—Afar, Benishangul Gumuz, Gambella, and Somali. Populations residing in the DRS are vulnerable to frequent manmade and natural disasters, phenomena that are compounded by weak regional governance systems and low capacity of government to deliver social services, including the planning, provision, and management of education.
- This study examines a set of peacebuilding and education interventions in the Benishangul Gumuz region—primarily in-school and after-school Civics and Ethics Education (CEE) programming for students and Training of Trainers (ToT) peacebuilding education training focusing on CEE for teachers.
- the programme’s Theories of Change (ToC) have informed the provision of PBEA programming,
- how these ToC are intended to address known conflict drivers in the Benishangul Gumuz region,
- and if and how these ToC have been actualized through PBEA programming.
