An Evaluation of the INEE Minimum Standards for Education in Emergencies, Chronic Crises and Early Reconstruction: A Uganda Case Study
Karpinska, Zuki

A year and a half after the launch of the "INEE Minimum Standards" in December 2004, a small baseline study suggested that awareness of the existence of the handbook among educational stakeholders in Uganda was low; in addition, the study found no instance of utilization of the handbook. The present report contains the findings of a study undertaken in 2008, which examined the current levels of awareness, utilization, institutionalization, and impact of the "INEE Minimum Standards" in Uganda. Approximately two-thirds of the 86 study participants--who comprised representatives of a range of institutions involved in the planning and implementation of educational interventions--were aware of the existence of the "INEE Minimum Standards" handbook. 20% of study participants reported using the "INEE Minimum Standards" handbook in their work. Only two institutions were found to have formally adopted the "INEE Minimum Standards" in their policies and procedures; in both these institutions, training staff on the handbook is a priority. Little evidence was found on the impact of the "INEE Minimum Standards" handbook in Uganda. Although the "INEE Minimum Standards" are an articulation of best practice in the field of education, more research is needed to determine the level of direct impact, since programming guidance comes from a variety of sources. Appended are: (1) Questionnaire; (2) Select Findings from the Questionnaire; and (3) Basic Facts about Uganda. (Contains 33 footnotes.)
