Abstract

The debate about education in conflict-affected contexts is fundamentally caught between 1) rights-based claims about access to quality learning; and 2) complexities around contexts, histories and politics of education. In this paper, I review some of the current debates in this rapidly expanding field to demonstrate how education interacts with different dimensions of violent conflict and then, argue that education should be conceptualised both as a process of dismantling conflict-inducing structures in society and, as a process of promoting critical inquiry, respect for diversity, social justice principles and skills for civic and political engagement.
