Educating children in conflict zones

This book examines the challenges of delivering quality education to the approximately 39 million out-of-school children around the world who live in situations affected by violent conflict. The volume provides a comprehensive and critical overview of the links between conflict and children’s access to education, as well as a review of the policies and approaches taken by those offering international assistance in this area. Empirical case studies are drawn from diverse contexts, including, Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Rwanda, and Uganda (among others). The chapter by S. Shepler is titled, ‘Helping our children will help in the reconstruction of our country: Repatriated refugee teachers in post-conflict Sierra Leone and Liberia’.
