In 2020, GCPEA identified more than 2,400 attacks on education and military use of schools and universities that harmed over 2,700 students and educators globally. This panel will address how to preserve, protect and guarantee the right to education in conflict contexts. How can international and national legal systems address violations and ensure justice for individuals and communities affected by attacks on education? What can be done to strengthen monitoring and reporting on attacks, including sex-disaggregated data and strengthening the use of existing data, for example, to prevent attacks and ensure accountability? What concrete measures can States take to better protect girls and women from attacks on education?
