Case Studies on Education in Conflict and Transition Contexts
This Field Note outlines UNICEF’s role in providing education in conflict-affected contexts. It presents recent developments in this field and discusses lessons learned and good practice based on our experience. Through country case studies this publication illustrates some of the innovative approaches UNICEF is using to ensure that children have continued access to education during and after conflicts and crises.
The cases look at Schools as Zones of Peace in Nepal, the Go to School Initiative in Southern Sudan and school provision and capacity building interventions in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. UNICEF is committed to supporting conflict-affected countries in establishing quality, relevant and equitable education systems in order to realize the right of children and youth to education and to promote more peaceful and just societies.
