- Publisher's Summary
- Inspired by the work of the late Dr. Jacqueline Kirk, this book takes a penetrating look at 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. With chapters by leading researchers on education in war and other conflict zones, 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 drawn from diverse contextsAfghanistan, Sierra Leone, Rwanda, and Uganda (among others)offer readers a deeper understanding of the educational needs of these children and the practical challenges to meeting these needs.
