- Publisher's Summary
- This is a global exploration of humanitarian aid and educational service provision in situations of instability. What is the relationship between education, aid and aid agencies? Drawing on international research in numerous countries, including Thailand, India, Afghanistan, Lebanon and the UK, the contributors consider, conceptually and empirically, the provision of education to aid and aid agencies, analyzing the internal and external factors affecting educational provision during and after emergencies. Each chapter contains a summary of the key points and issues within the chapter to enable easy navigation, key contemporary questions to encourage you to actively engage with the material and an annotated list of suggested further reading to support you to take your exploration further. A companion website supports the text and provides updates and additional resources. This series presents an authoritative, coherent and focused collection of texts to introduce and promote the notion of education as a humanitarian response as a prime function of educational activity. The series takes a holistic interpretation of education, dealing not only with formal schooling and other systemic provisions in the mainstream, but rather with educational reality - teaching and learning in whatever form it comes at any age.
