IIEP and CfBT Education Trust - research partnership on education in conflict, emergencies, reconstruction and fragile states.
IIEP and CfBT Education Trust have established a research partnership on education in conflict, emergencies, reconstruction and fragile states
In spite of the recent and growing attention to provision of education in conflict, emergencies, reconstruction and fragile states, rigorous research on this new discipline is still rare and research findings not widely disseminated.
CfBT Education Trust will be associated with IIEP in a hands-on partnership, intended to contribute to Education for All goals through research on education in conflict, emergencies, reconstruction and fragile states. This research should help develop knowledge on specific interventions, strategies and methodologies that could be used to improve access to quality Education for All.
The research activities will be undertaken between July 2007 and
December 2008. Field visits will start in August 2007 and will cover selected countries from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
Four global research themes have been identified:
1. Advocacy-driven educational programming in emergencies and early reconstruction: A case study - Making safe spaces work for children
2. Alternative education programmes for refugee, internally displaced and returnee children and youth
3. Protecting positive community participation in education during emergencies and reconstruction
4. Donors' engagement in education during and after conflicts
The outputs of this partnership are:
- Four joint publications of IIEP and CfBT Education Trust, in the IIEP series Education in Emergencies and Reconstruction
- Four corresponding policy and research briefings in CfBT series Perspectives, Intervention Studies, Guidance Materials, Literature Reviews
