Watch the authors provide more background on their work featured in the journal’s articles, lessons learned, and proposed next steps for research. The first interview is on Quality Education for Refugees in Kenya and the second one depicts research on History Education (addressing recent or ongoing conflict since 1990).

Published: Accelerated Education Program Literature Review

USAID and NORC published an important new study, Accelerated Education Programs in Crisis and Conflict: Building Evidence and Learning. This thorough literature review provides insight into a critical global issue that more than 50 million children have been deprived of an education through the impact of crisis and/or conflict. AEPs provide a key strategy for providing these children and youth access to basic education that is otherwise denied to them.

The review provides insight into a) the profiles and elements of existing AEPs, b) the learning outcomes reported by AEPs; c) critical questions and gaps in the literature, and d) recommendations for conducting evaluations and research on AEPs. Click here to access the full report and brief.
