Education as Hope

(p.154) 6 Conclusion
Schools for Conflict or for Peace in Afghanistan

Dana Burde

Columbia University Press

This concluding chapter reiterates the key points that can be deduced from rest of the chapters in this book. Firstly, is the importance of education to humanitarian action; secondly, is the importance it holds for the Afghans; and lastly, the way education can be used for conflict or peace more generally. The chapter illustrates these key points by looking at the dramatic success story of education interventions in community-based schools. The success of the community-based schools may not resolve all of Afghanistan's problems, but it marks the beginning of the expanded access to education in the country. The chapter also offers suggestions for future research, as well as policy recommendations for international donors, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and the government of Afghanistan.

Keywords:   education, humanitarian action, education interventions, community-based schools, Afghanistan, access to education
