Overview: Education in emergencies and protracted crises can provide safe-spaces during crises, and is crucial to the success of other interventions, such as water and health. Education is vital for both economic growth and peace and stability of countries. It is often identified as a high priority by affected communities themselves. This paper, a contribution to the Oslo Summit on Education Development 6-7 July 2015, aims to detail the challenge and show how, with political commitment and resourcing, much more could be done.
