Conflict sensitive education refers to the design and delivery of education programs and policies in a way that considers the conflict context and aims to minimize the negative impact (contribution to conflict) and maximize positive impact (contribution to peace).

INEE developed a Conflict Sensitive Education Pack to support the integration of conflict sensitivity in education policies and programs. The Conflict Sensitive Education Pack includes a Guidance Note, Reflection Tool, and INEE Guiding Principles, and is available for download in the following languages:

Reflection Tool for Designing and Implementing Conflict Sensitive Education Programs in Conflict-Affected and Fragile Contexts
This Reflection Tool is designed to help you reflect on the impact of conflict dynamics on education programs and how these education programs can help either mitigate or exacerbate the conflict dynamics. It can be used to integrate conflict sensitivity at all stages of the project cycle: assessment, design, implementation/management, monitoring and evaluation. Principles of community participation, equity, access, quality, relevance and protection are included across the tool and are based on the INEE Minimum Standards for Education. This Reflection Tool can be used in the following ways: 1. For an assessment of a new education program; 2. In the design of a new education program; 3. In the implementation / management of an education program; 4. In monitoring and evaluating an education program; and 5. In the review of an education program.
