Inspired by the work of the late Dr. Jacqueline Kirk, this book takes a penetrating look at the challenges of delivering quality education to the approximately 39 million out-of-school children around the world who live in situations affected by violent conflict. With chapters by leading researchers on education in war and other conflict zones, the volume provides a comprehensive and critical overview of the links between conflict and children’s access to education, as well as a review of the policies and approaches taken by those offering international assistance in this area. Empirical case studies drawn from diverse contexts―Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Rwanda, and Uganda (among others)―offer readers a deeper understanding of the educational needs of these children and the practical challenges to meeting these needs. This inspiring collection:

  • Extends the legacy of the work that Jacqueline Kirk passionately pursued in her lifetime.
  • Includes several pieces of Jackie’s writings plus new chapters from preeminent scholars in the field of education in conflict.
  • Focuses on lessons that can be learned from the views of children and educators on the ground. 
  • Introduces cutting-edge approaches to field research, including impact evaluation and the use of photo-narrative.
  • Presents promising policy developments and pioneering programs that are making a difference in the lives of children affected by conflict.

Review:

“Inspiring and refreshing.”
Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu



“This volume is a wonderful testimony to the passionate pursuit that animated Jackie Kirk: education for all, and especially for girls, in the precarious setting of fragile states. It is particularly apt that Jackie’s own writings are included. The book represents a remarkable collaboration of impressive colleagues.”
George Rupp, President and CEO, International Rescue Committee
