Promoting social stability through education: Guidance for educators

In contexts of high social tensions, everyone working in education needs to prioritise efforts to make learning spaces safe and welcoming, prevent violence, promote a sense of belonging, and support children’s and teachers’ wellbeing and growth alongside academic achievement.

We have developed this guidance note for practitioners in the education sector to provide practical, actionable steps to enhance social stability in and through education.

The guidance note draws on our experience in peacebuilding, our partnerships with organisations supporting education and child protection in Lebanon, on consultations with educators and peacebuilding practitioners and on learning generated through other projects.

The production of this note was funded by the Allan and Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust.
