Reflexions on the effectiveness of partnerships - past and future - to promote education for all in Asia and the Pacific
This document consists of three papers presented at the symposium on Reflexions on the effectiveness of partnerships – past and future - to promote education for all in Asia and the Pacific at the 2015 UKFIET International Education and Development Conference “Learning for Sustainable Futures: Making the Connections” held at Oxford University, United Kingdom, September 15-17, 2015.
The right to education is regarded as universal and inviolable, yet all over the world children, especially girls, continue to be denied their right to a quality schooling. In Sierra Leone, a gender gap in education persists, particularly from secondary school onwards where lower levels of female participation are recorded, due in part to forms of violence and discrimination directed against girls.
With the input of many INEE members, INEE’s Gender Task Team developed this tool as a quick reference guide to help practitioners make sure that education, as part of emergency preparedness, response and recovery, is gender-responsive and meets the rights and needs of all girls and boys, women and men affected by crisis. This guide is for anyone working to provide, manage or support education services as part of emergency preparedness, response or recovery.
