Consortium co-led by IOE will support education continuity for children in conflict and crisis areas

18 March 2024

IOE, UCL’s Faculty of Education and Society, co-leads the Education in Conflict and Protracted Crisis (ERICC) Research Programme Consortium, which will support sustainable and coherent education systems in countries affected by conflict and protracted crises.

IOE to co-lead ERICC

Academics based at IOE's Centre for Education and International Development (CEID) have joined ERICC, a three-year Education in Emergencies research programme, co-led by the International Rescue Committee (IRC).

The £15.8 million project, funded by the British Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), aims to identify the most effective approaches for improving access, quality, and continuity of education in seven countries affected by conflict: Bangladesh (Cox’s Bazar), Jordan, Lebanon, Myanmar, Nigeria, South Sudan and Syria.

It represents the most extensive research programme to date on education in conflict and crisis.

The UCL team consists of Professors Tejendra Pherali and Elaine Chase, and Drs Amy North and Simone Datzberger, who joined ERICC in November 2023.

They will be supporting the development of the global research agenda for the field of education in conflict and crisis; collaborating with in-country research teams on various research studies; and leading cross-regional and global studies in the areas of education and peacebuilding, teacher development and wellbeing, and gender-related issues in education in conflict and crisis.
