The objective of this report is to raise
awareness and understanding of the extent to which those involved in education
are facing violent attacks, particularly in complex emergency contexts,
and what can and should be done about the problem. This study focuses on
targeted violent attacks, carried out for political, military, ideological,
sectarian, ethnic or religious reasons, against students, teachers, academics,
education trade unionists, education officials and all those who work in
or for education institutions such as schools, colleges and universities.
