Education in conflict and emergencies: Introduction – Dr Tejendra Pherali (Institute of Education)

This will be a brief presentation to introduce the seminar programme and highlight some of the current debates in the field of education, conflict and emergencies.

Stopping violence against girls in schools? –  Dr Jenny Parkes (Institute of Education)

This seminar will present research findings on the effectiveness of a multi-partnered NGO intervention (led by ActionAid) which aimed over 5 years to address gender violence in schools and communities in Kenya, Ghana and Mozambique. Drawing on data from a mixed methodology endline study, I will consider why change has been uneven, relating this both to features of context and to the nature of the intervention. The seminar will conclude with a discussion about the educational implications.
