Protection of Education - New Developments

In September 2012, BIICL published Protecting Education in Insecurity and Armed Conflict: An International Law Handbook (the Handbook), a practical and comprehensive guide to the relevant provisions of international law that protect education in situations of insecurity and armed conflict. The Handbook was authored by the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) and was the culmination of a year-long research project commissioned by Protect Education in Insecurity and Conflict (PEIC), a programme of the Education Above All foundation.

In order to facilitate the teaching of the content of our research on the protection of education, BIICL and PEIC have now developed two documents which may be used freely by law professors and lecturers. These documents include a PowerPoint presentation and accompanying notes which are meant to cover a two to three hour class. Their content covers the protection of education under international human rights law, international humanitarian law, and international criminal law. It is suitable for any international law class and may be adapted to suit different knowledge levels.

On this webpage, you will find links to download free of charge the Handbook, its yearly updates, as well as the teaching materials. Feedback on these documents can be given here
