Bringing peacebuilding to nexus thinking in education in emergencies: Promising practices to overcome injustices

This synthesis report was commissioned by INEE, UNESCO and IFRC through the Geneva Global Hub for Education in Emergencies (EiE Hub). These partners recognise that education in emergencies and protracted crises must be recognised as a cornerstone of humanitarian, peace and development action – not as secondary to sectoral responses – and that this requires action across the humanitarian-development-peacebuilding nexus by key stakeholders such as those in International Geneva. Its purpose is to critically explore the potential for education to contribute towards the humanitarian-development-peacebuilding nexus in conflict-affected contexts. To do so, it commissioned five case studies that present overviews of education interventions that has had peacebuilding outcomes and conducted a critical theoretical literature review to identify common challenges that limit the possibilities for education to have peacebuilding outcomes. The case studies are from Central Asia, Bangladesh, Lebanon, Nigeria and Peru.
