Education in fragile states: Capturing lessons and identifying good practice, Rose, P., Greeley, M., Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Sussex, UK , 2006
This paper has been written by Dr Pauline Rose from Centre for International Education, and Dr Martin Greeley from the Institute of Development Studies, both at the University of Sussex, for the DAC Fragile States Group. It examines how development assistance in countries with poor governance can enhance access to quality basic education for the poor and vulnerable, at the same time improving governance and thereby mitigating the risks of fragility, and increasing the effectiveness of future aid.
The authors argue that the main opportunities for effective donor support are where incipient will exists and that such will can be identified at different levels (locally, nationally and internationally). They add that even where willingness for pro-poor reform is weak, there is often a will to support education given its role in identity formation.Education in fragile states: Capturing lessons and identifying good practice
