‘New INEE Guidance Note on Conflict Sensitive Education!’

Standard

The INEE Working Group on Minimum Standards and Network Tools is pleased to share the new Guidance Note on Conflict Sensitive Education!

The Guidance Note offers strategies for developing and implementing conflict sensitive education programs and policies. Building upon the INEE Minimum Standards, the Guidance Note is a useful tool for practitioners, policy-makers and researchers working in conflict-affected and fragile contexts.

The strategies and resources in the Guidance Note are meant to provoke thought rather than indicate prescriptive measures; adaptation to each unique context is necessary.

Inside, Section I introduces key concepts related to conflict sensitive education. Section II offers strategies to implement conflict sensitive education programs and policies. Section III features the Conflict Sensitive Education Quick Reference Tool; conflict analysis activities and tools; case studies from Sierra Leone, South Sudan and Colombia; and references.

The INEE Guidance Note on Conflict Sensitive Education complements the INEE Minimum Standards, the INEE Diagnostic Program Tool and Guiding Principles for Donors on Conflict Sensitive Education (coming in April 2013). For these and more tools and resources on conflict sensitive education, visit the INEE Toolkit and INEE website. To order hard copies of INEE tools, click here.

Take Action – Make Conflict Sensitive Education a Reality!
We encourage you to:

1) Ensure that your education programs and policies are conflict sensitive. Informed by conflict- and context analysis, education programs and policy should contribute to peacebuilding, minimize exacerbating tensions and avoid contributing to conflict. Use the Guidance Note for strategies and guidance on achieving conflict sensitive education.
 
2) Introduce the new Guidance Note and the concept of conflict sensitive education to your colleagues and partners. Use any opportunity you have to promote conflict sensitivity. The Talking Points and Powerpoint Presentation can help you.

3) Share your experience with conflict sensitivity in and through education. Contact minimumstandards@ineesite.org and educationfragility@ineesite.org.

If you are not already, we encourage you to become an INEE member.
