This literature review provides a succinct overview of key literature on the contributions that education (as part of social service delivery) can make to peacebuilding. It summarises findings from three existing reviews and then synthesises the findings from a literature search of 171 documents, resulting in 79 publications for closer review. It concludes with a number of key messages for policymakers in terms of the integration of education and peacebuilding.

In the context of debates relating to teachers’ role in educational outcomes, accountability and management, this literature review explores their potential to be active agents of peacebuilding. Specifically, the review aims to explore their role in promoting peace, reconciliation, social cohesion and violence mitigation, recognising that literature specifically relating to teachers and peacebuilding was limited.  The review is based on a framework (Naylor and Sayed, 2014) which conceives teachers as active agents located in particular global,
national and local policy contexts and structures.

This Literature Review aims to provide insights into youth agency and the dynamics of conflict and peace in conflict-affected contexts. In particular it focuses on how educational interventions may contribute to enhancing the agency of youth as peacebuilders.  The review draws on the theoretical framework developed for the consortium, which locates youth within peacebuilding processes of Reconciliation, Redistribution, Recognition and Representation (four R’s). The review aims to communicate its findings to a broad audience including academic researchers, professional practitioners, policy makers and interested
young people.

The purpose of this synthesis report is twofold. First, it examines how education is
included in peacebuilding and development frameworks in four distinct conflict-affected
environments (Myanmar, Pakistan, South Africa and Uganda). Second, it compares,
summarises and critically reflects how education policies and governance contribute to
the peacebuilding process.

This synthesis report explores the role of teachers in peacebuilding and social cohesion in four distinct conflict affected environments (Myanmar, Pakistan, South Africa and Uganda). It compares, summarises and critically reflects on key issues, policies and governance aspects that relate to how teachers might contribute to peacebuilding and social cohesion processes. In doing so, we pay close attention to aspects of redistribution, representation, recognition and reconciliation (see: Novelli et al. 2015).

Youth Agency and Peacebuilding: An Analysis of the Role of Formal and Non-Formal Education. Synthesis report on findings from Myanmar, Pakistan, South Africa and Uganda, University of Amsterdam.

Read the full synthesis report here.
A short Executive Summary can also be accessed here.

This Synthesis Report aims to understand the ways visual-youth-agency-synthesis-report-final-page-001in which the agency of youth – or
their ‘space for manoeuvre’ – is impacted (or not) through a range of formal and non-formal education interventions, and how this enables or restricts young peoples’ ability to contribute to
processes of peacebuilding and social
cohesion, either in political, socio-cultural or economic ways. 
It brings together analyses from n four distinct conflict-affected environments (Myanmar, Pakistan, South Africa and Uganda) and combines a focus on youth agency, peacebuilding and education – an intersection that is often not addressed simultaneously.
