What Ministries Can Do to Protect Education from Attack and Schools from Military Use: A Menu of Actions

This Menu of Actions is intended as a resource to empower personnel of ministries responsible for education to better prevent attacks on education or protect schools from military use, mitigate the impact of attacks when they do occur, and respond to attacks. The actions are drawn primarily from publications by GCPEA and its member organizations. Although the focus of the paper is on schools, many of the recommendations may be considered for universities or other educational institutions (e.g. vocational training centers).
