About The Event
Today’s education in emergencies emphasises protecting the right to education in crisis situations, while conflict is theoralised as interruption to education. In this talk Dr Marta Moskal will provide an overview of current geopolitical situation (globally drawing on selected local case studies) and recent research to explain the development of the field of education in conflict and emergencies. The presentation and follow up discussion will focus on the questions: In which ways conflict and migration can be understood as challenge faced by education systems locally, nationally and internationally? And how to realise the right to education for all in the conflict and emergencies contexts?
