Education under Attack 2014

Thursday, February 27, 2014 - 9:15am to 11:30am

The Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack cordially invites you to the launch of our new study:

Education under Attack 2014



Education under Attack 2014 provides the most comprehensive and thorough examination to date of targeted attacks on education. It documents how students, teachers, and academics have been killed, injured and abducted, and schools and universities bombed and burned, not just as a casualty of conflict, but deliberately, as a tactic of war.  It includes detailed profiles of 30 countries where there has been a pattern of attacks over the last five years.

Please join us for lunch from 12:15 to 1:00 PM, which will be followed by the release of the study and an expert panel discussion from 1:00 to 2:30 PM.

Confirmed Panelists:

Mr. Nicholas K. Alipui, Director of Programmes, UNICEF
Mr. Mark Angelson, Chairman, Institute of International Education’s Scholar Rescue Fund
Ms. Zama Coursen-Neff, Chair, Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack
Mr. Kenneth Roth, Executive Director, Human Rights Watch
Ms. Tove Wang, Chief Executive Officer, Save the Children Norway

We hope you will join us for this special event.
