Education Resources

The Women's Commission for Refugee Women and Children recently released a new handbook entitled Your Right to Education: A Handbook for Refugees and Displaced Communities (2007). A companion User Guide and Activities Guide provide ideas on how to use the Handbook to raise awareness and stimulate discussion in individual communities.

An earlier book, Right to Education during Displacement: A Resource for Organizations Working with Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons (2006), "was developed for international and local organizations, the United Nations and governments" to promote better access to education by displaced communities.

Other resources and tools that can be used to plan for and promote education during emergencies include:

Guidebook for Planning Education in Emergencies and Reconstruction (International Institute for Educational Planning, 2006)

UNHCR Education Standards and Indicators Handbook (UNHCR, 2006)

INEE Technical Kit on Education in Emergencies and Early Recovery (INEE, 2004)

Minimum Standards for Education in Emergencies, Chronic Crises and Early Reconstruction (Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies, 2004)

Education Field Guidelines (UNHCR, 2003)

Education in Emergencies: A Tool Kit for Starting and Managing Education in Emergencies (Save the Children, 2003)

Posted in Publications.
