The Global Partnership for Education and the Evolution of Engagement in Contexts of Conflict and Fragility

Official Development Assistance (ODA) has historically focused on “good performers.” With evidence that aid works better in countries with stronger institutions and more effective policy regimes, good governance has long been a prerequisite for investment. What does this mean for international support of the education of children living in fragile and conflict-affected settings, which are by definition settings where governance is threatened?

This article aims to answer this question, while analyzing the evolving support to fragile and conflict-affected states through three key phases of engagement, and examining GPE's evolving support for fragile and conflict-affected states.
