Schools and Education in Armed Conflict (DIEEEA19-2015)

Four years of war in Syria provide alarming figures about the impact of this conflict on civilians. Out of all the victims, once again children appear as the most exposed human targets to the consequences of war. One of the most unknown aspects of this conflict is its impact in Syrian children and adolescents education.
Educational vulnerability is not usually a visible subject in conflict analysis. However, it is becoming more evident the need to reinforce the protection of children and young people right to education and prioritize this need, even in wartime. The destruction of schools favours the exposure of children and young people to forced recruitment, to the violence, increases gender inequality and weakens countries to achieve peace.
