Education decreases the risk of conflict: each year of education reduces the risk of conflict by around 20%.

Education empowers youth and keeps them away from conflict: youths without education can be nine times more likely to be recruited by rebel groups.

Education makes people more tolerant: people with a secondary education showed more tolerance than those with just a primary education.

Education increases support for democracy: across 18 sub-saharan African countries, educated people of voting age, are more likely to express support for democracy compared with people with no education.

Education promotes peace and helps communities prevent and cope with conflicts:

  • Rebuilding education systems after war builds trust and accountability with government
  • Formal primary education helps restore hope to communities, showing that their lives can return to normal
  • Psycho-social programmes in primary schools decrease psychological distress and restores optimism.
