Opening up a world of education

Children love to learn. If they are denied access to knowledge, we also deny them the opportunity to change their lives for the better.

Education to Mitigate Fragility

The study reviews the development and evolution of the education and fragility agenda, situating it within the evolution of the fragile states agenda. It poses the question as to what we know about how education can mitigate fragility, and examine a possible explanation for why we still do not know much: that education in fragile contexts and as an intervention to interrupt those fragility dynamics presents a problem situated within a complex system for which our traditional approaches are not adequate. The study will then propose new approaches that can better help us grapple with the complexity encountered in such contexts and offer some practical steps forward to initiate a change in the modus operandi.
