Education is one of the areas where development aid has achieved concrete results. The increase in the number of schoolchildren is formidable. There are success stories even in the most war-torn provinces. But are we celebrating a bit too early? In this seminar we are looking at the many opportunities, but also gaps and challenges in the education sector in conflict and post-conflict countries like Afghanistan. 

What are the lessons learned and how do we ensure access to education for all? How do we enable universities, teacher-training centers, education authorities and schools to provide quality education for the next generation of Afghan children and youth?  How do we manage to provide quality education in the midst of conflict and war? And how do we bridge the urban-rural divide in education? 

Susan Wardak, Special Advisor to the Afghan Minister of Education and Director General for Teacher Education: Women in education. How to ensure that more women are trained as teachers, and that female teachers are deployed to rural and conflict prone areas, so that all girls will have access to quality education in their home communities?    

Terje Magnussønn Watterdal, Country Director, Norwegian Afghanistan Committee: Education for almost all. How to include vulnerable groups of children in education, and overcome the rural-urban divide in education.

Ehsanullah Ehsan, Director, Kandahar Institute of Modern Studies: Education is key to development in Afghanistan. How to insure access to education in one of the most war-torn provinces of Afghanistan? 

Razia Arooje: Resistance to girls education from three perspectives: cultural, security and the current education structure in Afghanistan
