Each country profile includes information on six categories of attacks on education, as relevant:
  • Physical attacks or threats of attacks on schools
  • Physical attacks or threats directed at students, teachers, and other education personnel
  • Military use of schools and universities
  • Child recruitment at, or en route to or from, school or university
  • Sexual violence by armed parties at, or en route to or from, school or university
