This unit examines the critical role of Education in the provision of humanitarian assistance in a range of developing nations and natural disaster circumstances, and investigates global organisations and their policies and strategies targeting educational assistance in these circumstances. It explores the broad approaches to educational provision in humanitarian circumstances and considers case studies detailing how educators work with a range of non-government organisations and local communities to facilitate capacity building through Education. The unit critically examines issues faced by educators working in humanitarian contexts and seeks to develop knowledge and skills required of educators contributing to educational humanitarian assistance.
