Feasibility Study for improved global monitoring of attacks on education

This report was commissioned as a response to growing international concern over attacks on education globally, including killings, injury and abductions of students and staff, and destruction of infrastructure. The study represented a first investigation into the feasibility of collecting more comprehensive data on such attacks, including incidence, prevalence, motives and responses. It is divided into three sections: Part One: Overview and summary; Part Two: Issues, methodology and trends; and Part Three: Feasible approaches to a global monitoring system. This report is the result of a partnership between the University of Columbia Group on Children and Adversity and Education Above All (EAA), a Qatar-based independent NGO.
