Promoting participation – Community contributions to education in conflict situations

INEE has provided reference to a new report on community participation:

(UNESCO/IIEP and CfBT Education Trust)

Community participation is a much-acknowledged and important part of the field of education in emergencies. A recent report released by UNESCO and the CfBT Education Trust explores the roles communities play in providing education, and the conditions that can either obstruct or encourage their involvement, in both emergency and reconstruction settings including among Iraqi refugees in Jordan and within communities in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, Southern Sudan, Uganda and Liberia.

Focusing on the types of roles that communities play, and the factors that encourage and discourage participation, the report chronicles both successes and challenges various communities have faced in their efforts to provide education during times of conflict and reconstruction.

The full report is available here.
