Global Education Colloquium: Education Under Attack
Start Date: 4/11/2017Start Time: 5:30 PM
End Date: 4/11/2017End Time: 7:00 PM

Event Description
Jo Becker, Human Rights Watch

In armed conflict, schools, teachers, and students have increasingly become deliberate targets of attack. The phenomenon is best known in Syria, where more than 6,000 schools have been destroyed or are no longer functioning. But in the last decade, repeated attacks on education have taken place in at least 30 countries. Military forces also use schools for military purposes, such as barracks, bases, sniper posts, and weapons depots, depriving children of their right to education, and in the worst instances, exposing them to attack. Jo Becker will discuss recent research on how education is targeted during armed conflict, and the global advocacy campaign to protect schools from attack and military use.
