Attaques contre l'éducation et utilisation militaire des écoles et des universités dans les pays ciblés, 2013-2017
Très lourdement affectés
In countries across the globe from Afghanistan to Colombia to India to Mali to Turkey to Yemen and on, students, teachers, and educational facilities are under siege. Targeted killings, rape, abduction, child recruitment, intimidation, threats, military occupation, and destruction of property are just some of the ways in which education is being attacked.

More than 150,000 children are missing out on education because of violence and attacks that have seen over 600 schools damaged in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Other schools in the Greater Kasai region have been occupied by military forces or are being used as emergency shelters for displaced families.
Even where schools have not been directly affected, many children and teachers are unwilling to attend classes because of the fear of violence or attacks.
For many children around the world, having a safe space to learn is far from guaranteed due to the threat of armed conflict and the targeting of schools. In this guest post for ‘In Focus’, Peter Klanduch and Margaret Sinclair of Education Above All’s legal advocacy programme PEIC – Protect Education in Insecurity and Conflict (PEIC) – explain the background to this global problem and the importance of keeping education safe for all children.

Military Use Risks Students Lives, Safety, Education
(New York, November 20, 2012) – The use of schools and other education institutions for military purposes by armed forces and non-state armed groups during wartime endangers students and their education around the world, said the Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack in a study released today.
In some conflict-affected countries, education itself can become a target of attack for a variety of ideological, political, religious, ethnic, and economic reasons in the context of the larger conflict. Attacks on students, education personnel, and education institutions put the lives of civilians, including children, at risk and may violate international humanitarian and human rights law, including undermining the right to education.
