Description

In the 2015 ThinkPiece, Barbara Moser-Mercer reflects on how higher education can meet the challenge of successful learning in fragile contexts, noting that "A decent higher education agenda for fragile contexts should 1) embody the promotion of everyone’s fundamental right to education, including higher education; 2) enhance the respect for principles of equity and intellectual and cultural diversity and thus for multiple pathways to attaining knowledge; 3) enhance social protection and re-establish social dialogue broken by conflict and chaos; and 4) create and improve livelihoods."
