The Education, Conflict, and Emergencies SIG brings together CIES members around a broad range of research and programmatic activities including education during armed conflict and natural disasters; educational reconstruction post-conflict and post-disaster; education in the emergency context of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the relationships between educational provision and peace-building, transitional justice, and resilience across conflict-affected, post-conflict, and fragile states.

Message from the Chairs

Welcome to the webpage of our Special Interest Group (SIG) on Education, Conflict and Emergencies (ECE). Through this SIG, we hope to support meaningful knowledge sharing, networking, and collaborations in this emerging field of study and practice. Our group welcomes anyone with an interest in the role of education - in its broadest sense - in situations of conflict and emergencies and in post-conflict and peacebuilding phases. We very much welcome your ideas and suggestions to jointly shape the future of this group, so please feel free to reach out and join us. We also welcome ideas for collaboration and creating connections with other SIGs within CIES. Our next gathering will be the business meeting during the CIES 2022 conference which will be a hybrid conference based out of Minneapolis from April 18-22, 2022. We will host several online Coffee, Tea, and Biscuit hours before CIES 2022, so make sure to check our events page for upcoming online meetups. Please follow us on Twitter and Facebook, and sign up for our newsletter below for more updates.
