Equity and Inequality
This list of resources are part of the larger Learning for Peace project. This section compiles the FHI360 research publications that compared education equality data and violent conflict data from nearly 100 countries over 50 years. It found robust evidence that the likelihood of violent conflict doubles for countries with high levels of intergroup inequality in education, after controlling for known conflict risk factors, such as wealth, political regime, geography, etc. The research also suggests that greater education equality between male and female students decreases the likelihood of violent conflict by as much as 37 per cent.
