This report, co-authored by ODI and UNGEI, is the last report produced as a part of research project Building on good practice: advancing gender equality and girls’ education.

The report presents a rigorous review that complements existing literature on education in conflict-affected contexts by investigating various barriers and threats girls encounter in accessing education, and by shining a spotlight on practices that have supported girls’ access to education in these contexts. The authors note promising approaches that can overcome or mitigate multiple threats, including leveraging community support for girl’s education, financial and in-kind support to the families sending girls to schools, as well as alternative education and learning initiatives, among others.
