Education and Fragility in Liberia

The purpose of the present report is to examine the impact of education on fragility in Liberia through a review of the drivers and dynamics of fragility, and the interaction of education with these drivers and dynamics. While primarily a desk study based on a review of secondary sources, this report also relies on information collected during a field visit to the country in September 2009 during which valuable insights were gathered through interviews with several key stakeholders.

It is hoped that by bringing to light the current interplays between education and fragility in Liberia and by suggesting ways to deal with them, this report will lead to positive actions in tackling these issues so that education mitigates fragility rather than exacerbates it.
