Chapter Summary

This chapter describes that providing education to children in armed conflicts is increasingly becoming recognized as both a source of protection and as a vital part of development. All children have the right to have an education according to Article of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). Since many conflicts are on-going for long periods of time, many children spend their whole childhood in armed conflict. In this context it is important to remember that the AIHRC has pointed out that issues such as parent’s relationship with school authorities and the notion that parents should play an active part in how schools are being managed and in finding solutions to any difficulties a child has as a pupil take time to develop. Conflict-affected children and parents all over the world view education as a priority and ask that the educational needs of the children be met.
