Education builds peace

The recent conference on the role of education in building social cohesion and sustainable peace, co-hosted by UNICEF, the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) and the World Bank, comes at a critical time. Almost 250 million children currently live in regions and countries affected by fragility and violent conflict.

UNICEF’s Peacebuilding, Education and Advocacy initiative – Learning for Peace – was launched in 2012 to address these pressing concerns – and ask how can we use education and social services to contribute to peacebuilding, social cohesion and resilience? The program invested in research to address the significant gap in knowledge and evidence on the contribution of education to peacebuilding. Key results from the program were shared at the conference and generated exciting discussions on the different issues around education for peacebuilding – policies, teacher and youth agency, as well as gender, education inequality, and conflict prevention.
