"Help Us Help Ourselves": Education in the Conflict to Post-conflict Transition in Liberia


It has become apparent that little work has been done to determine how to successfully create or recreate education systems in situations of transition from conflict to post-conflict. This document is the first of three country case studies to determine the categories and questions to be considered when planning for education at this tenuous time. A delegation of Women’s Refugee Commission board members and staff traveled to Liberia in December 2005 to gather data on the subject; a questionnaire was developed based on categories in the Inter-Agency Network on Education in Emergencies Minimum Standards for Education in Emergencies.
