How conflict analyses informed UNICEF's peacebuilding and education programming

This resource is part of a collection of resources compiled by UNICEF’s 2012-2016 Peacebuilding, Education and Advocacy Programme (PBEA), known as Learning for Peace, which was funded by the Government of the Netherlands. The purpose of Lessons Learned for Peace is to share UNICEF’s experience in conducting conflict analyses as a prerequisite for social services programming in fragile and conflict-affected contexts. As part of UNICEF’s Peacebuilding, Education and Advocacy programme, supported by the Government of the Netherlands from 2012-2016, UNICEF commissioned conflict analyses in 14 countries that informed education and other social services interventions at the system, institutional, community and individual levels. The challenges, opportunities and lessons-learned of conflict analysis research in fragile and post-conflict contexts are illustrated and discussed.
