Learning for Peace: Narratives from the Field- A Compendium of Programme Strategies 2012/2016

In recognition of the costs of violent conflict and education’s transformative potential, UNICEF implemented the Peacebuilding, Education and Advocacy (PBEA) programme – Learning for Peace – during 2012–2016. In response to the lack of evidence on links between education and peacebuilding at its outset, Learning for Peace stakeholders produced 16 conflict analyses/needs assessments, five evaluation reports, 96 case studies, 43 research reports and 10 knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAP) surveys by the end of the programme in 2016. In addition, case study research was conducted with the overarching goal of closing the knowledge gap to strengthen the education policies and practices that can contribute to peacebuilding.

This compendium has been developed on the basis of these resources, and offers a select group of strategies summarized from programme documents, with additional insights gleaned from external sources.
