EDUCATION FOR LIVELIHOODS AND CIVIC PARTICIPATION IN POST-CONFLICT COUNTRIES
What role can education play in the reconstruction process as communities recover and rebuild? How, specifically, can skills training, vocational education and technical learning contribute to this process? What role can TVET play in building civic participation as well as building economic livelihoods?
This are the key questions explored in the most recent issue published in the UNEVOC Discussion Papers Series.
This discussion paper is the outcome of the first phase of a research project commissioned by UNESCO-UNEVOC, in partnership with the University of Oxford. The paper conceptualizes a holistic approach to TVET programming and planning in selected post-conflict countries in sub-Saharan Africa. It provides a review of relevant literature and elaborates the principal theoretical and practical issues shaping the current delivery of TVET in post-conflict countries. The second half of the paper introduces literature-based case studies of education and training arrangements in Liberia, Uganda and southern Sudan.
This is the third discussion paper published in a series, which is part of the UNEVOC International Library of Education for the World of Work - an extensive publications programme prepared by the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre.
