Peacebuilding, education and advocacy: East Asia and Pacific desk review and situation analysis
As part of the United Nations Children’s Fund’s global Peacebuilding, Education and Advocacy (PBEA) programme, the East Asia and Pacific Regional Office (EAPRO) is developing a regional strategy on education for social cohesion and comprehensive school safety. In order to provide context for the strategy, this desk review will: 1. Examine the research and programme literature to identify themes in education’s role in peacebuilding and social cohesion, and assess existing knowledge and gaps; 2. Review current literature specific to education, peacebuilding and social cohesion in the Asia Pacific region; and 3. Identify the implications for the UNICEF East Asia and Pacific Regional Office in the development of a regional strategy for education, peacebuilding and social cohesion.
