Summary Report: BRiCE Project DRC and Niger. Teacher Wellbeing and Teaching Quality in Fragile and Conflict-Affected Contexts
MetadataShow full item record
Teachers and educators who work in fragile and conflict-affected contexts are at the forefront of complex crises which affect the schools they work in as well as their personal lives, and face extremely difficult working conditions. Over the last two years, the Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated the challenges they face in education sectors often marked by structural underfunding and sharp inequalities. Yet they continue to carry out their work to the best of their abilities and often at the cost of their wellbeing. They are pillars of the resilience of education in the face of crises, and the object of the BRiCE research project. Over the last four years, the European Union’s Directorate-General for International Partnerships (DGIP) has funded a flagship project on education in contexts of crises, entitled Building Resilience in Crises through Education (BRiCE). The project combined educational interventions aimed to support teachers, students and school communities in crisis-affected contexts, with research projects aimed at gaining a better understanding of the challenges they face. Four different consortia were funded between 2018 and 2022. This research summary presents the key results of the research project led by the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) and the Institut Supérieur Pédagogique de Bukavu (ISP Bukavu) in Niger and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). It is the research component of the consortium led by Save the Children Norway, in partnership with Save the Children UK, Save the Children International and the Education Ministries of Niger and the DRC. The results of the project are presented in three reports: the Baseline Report, the Midline Report and the Endline Report. Several academic articles are also being produced as part of this project, as well as a teaching module on education in conflict-affected contexts. A short book will also present the cross-cutting results of the four BRiCE research projects.
