Children have a fundamental right to education, and to the protection that schools uniquely provide in the chaos that characterizes life for refugees and internally displaced persons. This book is grounded in the personal experiences of children, aid workers, and national leaders involved in natural disasters and post-conflict resolution. Experts from many troubled parts of the world consider the scope of the problem, as well as the tools needed to address the crisis.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Even in Chaos should be required reading for everyone concerned about the desperate plight of too many children in the world. As many voices in this book remind us, education is our most powerful weapon in this war.-Tom Brokaw

I have done voluntary work for UNICEF and other UN agencies during military conflicts and afterwards. I found this book enthralling reading -a hands on fresh account and examination of both achievements and on-going mistakes. Children's education has always been a passion of mine. A huge thanks to all the writers and especially to Doctor Cahill." -Vanessa Redgrave I thank Dr. Cahill for bringing together the important contributions to this book and am confident that it will make us feel strong and more prepared in our commitment to better protect our learners, their teachers and all those involved in the delivery of their right to education. I believe these efforts have enabled us to make progress toward these important goals and see increasing awareness of right to education in emergencies as part of the legacy of my Presidency. -H.E. Miguel D'Escoto Brockmann

"Cahill has edited a very important book that should alert citizens and experts alike to the fundamental role education plays in the recovery from mass violence and in its prevention and migration. . . Recommended."-Choice
