Catalyst for Education and Gender Equality, Issue 2

This issue of Catalyst offers a wide-ranging survey of Education in Emergencies and Post-Crisis Transition Countries. A feature essay explores the reasoning that underpins this important emerging strain in human rights and development work. An expanded “Voices from the Field” section focuses on the challenges and triumphs of education in wartime Iraq; education as an early peace dividend, as described by UNICEF Southern Sudan Education Chief Sibeso Luswata; and a discussion of the fragility of progress in Afghanistan. Interviews with children of conflict reveal the toll of violence on the young; Tufts University’s Dyan Mazurana talks about gender, conflict and education; plus back to school for displaced girls in Uganda; disaster preparedness and risk reduction in the Philippines school system; our select resource review, academic news and notes and a Parting Glance from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
