Published in June 2022, the latest version of the Journal on Education in Emergencies (JEiE) is a Special Issue on Gender in Education in Emergencies. The contributing authors share learning from research and field work conducted in varied contexts, including North America, sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia. The publication is openly accessibly here.
JEiE Volume 8, Number 2 offers an in-depth analysis of the unique gendered effects humanitarian emergencies have on boys and girls. Spurred by the commitment G7 leaders made in the Charlevoix Declaration on Quality Education for Girls, Adolescent Girls, and Women in Developing Countries to advance gender equality in education through sex-disaggregated data and evidence-based systems of accountability, this issue brings attention to the role scholarly research can play in improving access to and parity in the quality of education for learners affected by displacement, political fragility, and violence.
This issue includes five research articles, one field note, and three book reviews. The contributing authors share learning from research and field work conducted in varied contexts, including North America, sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia. This special issue of JEiE ties the crisis of girls’ unequal access to quality education with the worldwide impact of COVID-19 in several ways and brings into stark relief the vulnerabilities of education systems that are simultaneously confronting existing inequalities and novel emergency situations.
JEiE and the Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) hosted a webinar panel event with the featured authors and editors from the Special Issue. A recording of the webinar is available here.
