ECE Seminar Series

The Education in Conflict and Emergencies (ECE) seminar series is designed to create an opportunity for critical debates on the subfield of education and conflict and promote an understanding of the interactions between education in emergencies and international development.

The presentations include but are not limited to theorising the interactions between education and armed conflict; inequalities in education and violence; women and children in emergencies; education and peacebuilding; post-conflict educational reforms; and the provision of education in emergency situations.

Following on from the popularity of the 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 seminar series, we are pleased to invite you to what we are sure will be an exciting programme for the 2015/2016 academic year.

Convenor: Dr Tejendra Pherali
