We have seen attacks on and military use of educational facilities increase in recent years. In addition to death, injury, and damage, these attacks disrupt learning and destroy opportunities, with long-term consequences for children and communities. During this webinar,

  • GCPEA will highlight findings from the Education under Attack report (to be released in late June 2024),  including on the prevalence of the use of explosive weapons, as well as the unique impacts attacks on education have on girl students and students with disabilities.
  • The ICRC will discuss the specific ways it works to protect and ensure safe access to education during conflict, including promoting the provisions of International Humanitarian Law that protect education.
  • The Alliance will give an overview of the collaboration with INEE to bring the child protection and education sectors closer together, and how they can jointly address the humanitarian consequences of conflict.  
  • Recommendations to prevent and mitigate attacks on education and ensure continued access to learning will be given, followed by a Q&A session with the audience.

Panelists:

  • Dr. Jerome Marston, Senior Researcher, Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack (GCPEA)
  • Mark Chapple, Head of Education. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)
  • Elspeth Chapman, Strategic Partnerships, The Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action
