The right to Education for Refugees in Sub-Saharan Africa: Focus on Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda and South Africa


Seminarium i anslutning till Sida-projektet Research Training Partnership Programme in International and Comparative Education.

Education has been recognised as a human right since the adoption of Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) in 1948, and since then education, particularly primary education, has become part of several international human rights treaties and conventions. Most Sub Saharan African (SSA) countries including Ethiopia, Republic of South Africa, Kenya and Uganda have ratified several of the international conventions which have a bearing on the right to education. Regarding education for refugees, UNHCR in its 2012-2016 education strategy stated that promoting human potential through education and training as its pillar strategic intervention areas. For UNHCR, refugee education is at the heart of its mandate, and central to its mission of finding durable solutions to refugee. SSA countries are currently struggling to improve access, quality and equity of education for refugees. However, a closer examination of performances in refugee education in SSA countries highlight several key challenges including, among others, financing; participation in education; quality and equity; curriculum and medium of instruction; and coordination with ministries of education. This study, therefore, seeks to examine how the right to education for refugee children is guaranteed in SSA region and the challenges that schools and teachers face in implementing these rights.
