Humanitarian Action, Conflict Sensitivity and Peacebuilding through Education in South Sudan

This case study examines the role education can play and is playing in the conflict-induced humanitarian emergency in South Sudan. The study examines adjustments made by the Peacebuilding Education and Advocacy (PBEA) programme in response to the humanitarian crisis following 15 December 2015, including the role of education for the internally displaced population (IDP) camps (or Protection of Civilian Sites – PoCs), contributions to peacebuilding, and how in a humanitarian context education can help to forge resilient communities. When possible, the study gives a voice to the individual actors involved, especially children and adolescents.
