This report maps the education response to the crisis in Syria and is current as of December 2013. Data on the current crises and education provision offered in Syria as well as in Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, Northern Iraq/Kurdistan and Egypt presented in this report is based on a survey of the International Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) members and partners, and information shared by members of the INEE Working Group on Minimum Standards for education in emergencies and the INEE Steering Group.
In addition to desk based research, 34 respondents representing 27 different agencies undertook a survey. Respondents reported working or the intention to work in Syria and seven neighbouring countries involved in humanitarian response related to the Syrian conflict. Information was shared on work completed since the beginning of the conflict as well as work planned for 2014. The greatest number of respondents (50.0%) worked or were planning to work in Lebanon, with Jordan as the second most common location for educational interventions (35.3%). 85.3% of respondents indicated that they had been providing educational humanitarian services in 2013, with 35.3% and 82.4% reporting to have worked in 2012 or planning to work in 2014, respectively.
