Violent Conflict and Educational Inequality Literature Review
In this review, we consider the body of research on conflict and educational opportunity. We begin by exploring the multitude of potential ways in which conflict disrupts the education system. We then turn to evidence on how conflict changes educational inequality – going from general impacts to effects and damages for specific subpopulations. We conclude by discussing the methodological challenges of designing studies of conflict and approaches taken by existing research, with an eye towards the methods and strategies for setting up the design and analysis of quantitative data that would reflect the theoretical hypotheses and account for potential confounding factors.
