Education Think Piece #10: Education in emergencies

Navigating the humanitarian-development nexus in forced displacement contexts


Contemporary humanitarian action and development approaches acknowledge that humanitarian and development actors need to collaborate side-by-side at global and country levels. For education, this means that education specialists, ministry authorities, donors, and policymakers, amongst others, need to find ways to improve coordination across their humanitarian, development, and peacebuilding activities as they consider both short- and long-term education responses.

This Think Piece aims to locate this humanitarian-development nexus within the education sector, and to identify opportunities for key partners to seize the momentum around this nexus, particularly with regard to learners, teachers, national education system actors affected by forced displacement.
