Higher Education as the Catalyst of Recovery in Conflict-Affected Societies
Milton, Sansom; Barakat, Sultan
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v14 n3 p403-421 2016
This article examines the role of higher education in the recovery of conflict-affected societies and argues that while the sector is typically a very low reconstruction priority, it has the potential, if addressed strategically, to act as a catalyst for effective and sustainable post-war recovery. The article begins by contextualising higher education within broader debates around post-war recovery and education. It then analyses the relationship between higher education and four core intervention agendas in conflict-affected societies: stabilisation and securitisation, reconstruction, statebuilding and peacebuilding.
