Drawing from research across the fields of education in emergencies, health and development, this literature review explores the transitions and challenges facing adolescent girls in conflict-affected settings. The focus concerns three key contexts: settings where adolescent girls live in nations affected by direct conflict, contexts of displacement in refugee-hosting nations, and post-conflict settings. The review considers the key factors that have contributed to adolescent girls’ low educational attainment, placing a spotlight on the challenges that research and humanitarian assistance agendas must seek to address.
