The Centre for Lebanese Studies and the University of Massachusetts Boston’s Institute for International and Comparative Education (IICE) have been jointly awarded a $461,981 grant from the Dubai Cares Evidence for Education in Emergencies (E-Cubed) Research Envelope.
The purpose of this study is to gain an in depth understanding of the ways in which private entities have contributed to education in emergencies, in partnership with each other and with public institutions at the global, national, and more localized level of educational programming. Drawing on the case of Syrian refugee education in Lebanon, the study seeks to understand:
The interaction, relationships, and proliferation of actors over time;
The characteristics of their partnerships;
The impact of these partnerships on coordination and community participation mechanisms that promote the engagement of localized actors in educational processes and programming;
The impact of partnership practices on student retention, progression, and integration into local communities via education.
A key objective is to identify the core features of promising partnership practices and to develop a set of guiding principles and partnership models that promote the INEE Minimum Standards of Coordination and Community Participation at the local level.
