Webcast: What is the Role of Affordable Non-State Schools in Crisis and Conflict Contexts?

May 22 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Between 2000 and 2014, the number of educational institutions affected by conflict increased 17-fold. In 2016, over 109 million children were living in fragile settings. In these settings, a government’s ability to provide education can be severely hampered and affordable non-state schools can respond to the unmet demand for education. Although there is significant research on both non-state education and education in crisis and conflict-affected countries, little has been written about their intersection.

On May 22, at 10:00 a.m. (EST), Results for Development (R4D) will present findings from a new report that explores the role of affordable non-state schools in crisis and conflict contexts. Panellists, featuring development practitioners from Results for Development (R4D), Education Development Center (EDC), and USAID, will present findings from El Salvador and Kaduna State, Nigeria, and lead a discussion on the role that governments and donors could play to support non-state education providers in crisis and conflict contexts.

Affordable non-state schools are defined in this research as formal and non-formal educational institutions that are owned or operated by non-state entities such as private citizens, faith-based organizations, or NGOs, and that target lower-income or marginalized populations.

The subject of non-state education is contentious, and more so when considered in crisis and conflict contexts. The purpose of this webcast is not to advocate for non-state providers but to explore potential contributions (negative and positive) that non-state schools can have on education outcomes in crisis and conflict-affected contexts.

Join us live on May 22 to participate in a rich discussion that will explore the role of affordable non-state schools in crisis and conflict contexts as well as how governments and donors might support them.
