Schools for Conflict or for Peace in Afghanistan

This chapter demonstrates the positive aspects of education interventions in Afghanistan. It begins by discussing the adoption of the “peace education” in the Afghan Ministry of Education (MoE) curriculum. Through this initiative, supplemental out-of-school or after school programs were conducted for ethnically diverse groups of young people, requiring them to participate in activities involving intergroup cooperation and support for the authorities, law, or custom. Community-based schools are ideal for this type of education, as these schools are less likely to be targeted by Taliban insurgents. From a broader perspective, this would mean more equitable access to government-affiliated education in Afghanistan. The chapter considers the role of the MoE curriculum in the state of education in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule.
