Abstract [en]

 This planned presentation relates to the invitation of a round table discussion for one hour on the topic “Emergency Education”. The discussion will present cases on “Emergency Education” related to Ethiopia in East Africa. The concept of “emergency education” has a reference to education programmes that are organised “in situations where children lack access to their national and community education systems due to occurrence of complex emergencies or natural disasters” (Kagawa, 2008, p. 494). Emergencies can be caused by armed conflict and instability, disasters and threats, pandemics and the effects of global climate change (UNESCO, 2022). Such emergencies disrupt education and leave millions of children and youth out of school. In countries and regions affected by emergencies and protracted crises, young people suffer the loss not just of homes, parents and relatives, but also of access to education and a safe learning environment. This of course impact on the children's and young people's future life chances and overburden societies. Due to devastating natural and man-made circumstances in Ethiopia the last years, a number of schools have been destroyed and the education sector is very affected. Many students along with their families are displaced. However, also many educational initiatives are taken to support children and youth in emergency and questions arise about ways of teaching, language (Demissie & Kenea Boru, 2021) and who is responsible for teaching and its costs.

This suggested round table discussion will focus on “emergency education” in Ethiopia.
