In 2011, UNICEF commissioned research to investigate the role of education in peacebuilding in post-conflict contexts. The resulting report, entitled “The Role of Education in Peacebuilding: A synthesis report of findings from Lebanon, Nepal and Sierra Leone,” is part of a knowledge generation study within the Back on Track programme on Education in Emergencies and Post-Crisis Transition. The study examines how integrated education interventions could have a stronger role in post-conflict peacebuilding within the United Nations system. It includes a programme literature and research review on the role of education in peacebuilding, as well as three country case studies on UNICEF’s education work in Lebanon, Nepal and Sierra Leone.
