Study on governance challenges for education in fragile situations: study synthesis report
The overall purpose of the Study was to better understand key governance challenges facing education in different fragile situations, and highlight implications and make recommendations for external support to the education sector. The case studies - Aceh (Indonesia), Cambodia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Lebanon, Liberia, Somalia and Southern Sudan were selected to provide a range of fragility and post-fragility contexts. The conceptual framework, methodology and activities for the Study are detailed in Section 1 and the specific methodology for the synthesis report in Annex 1. The evidence and findings are based on eight country governance assessments, which are summarised in the country profiles in Annexes 2 - 9 and available as full reports. The Study incorporated field visits to six countries, while the case studies on Lebanon and Somalia were conducted through desk research and distance consultations. The work is part of the broader research agenda established by the working group on 'Education and Fragility' – under the auspices of the 'Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies' (INEE).
