Donors' engagement: supporting education in fragile and conflict affected states
This research set out to examine the changing nature of donors’ engagement in supporting education in fragile and conflict-affected states. It outlines lessons learned and emerging good practice. A detailed examination was undertaken of the policies and practices of three main donors – the European Commission (EC), the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) – and two leading international non-governmental organizations (INGOs) – the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and Save the Children UK. In addition, a field visit to Liberia was carried out to obtain a more detailed country perspective, and to map the research findings.
