EAA is all set for celebrating International Day to Protect Education from Attack

Education Above All (EAA) is all set for celebrating International Day to Protect Education from Attack. EAA is organizing an event on Thursday, September 9th to celebrate the day.

The virtual event, titled “Protect Education for Sustainable Peace,” provides a forum for people to talk about how to build sustainable education and peace, governance mechanisms, and legal mechanisms for protecting education, as well as the importance of gathering data and evidence to hold perpetrators accountable and achieve justice for victims.

The Education Above All Foundation, the Permanent Mission of the State of Qatar to the United Nations, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), and the UN Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Children and Armed Conflict is co-organizing the event. The event is anticipated to bring together a number of international leaders and representatives from the United Nations, as well as youth advocates, politicians, and academics.

Prior to the event, the EEA, which is concerned with education issues, made a request to provide compensation to victims of assaults on education, citing newly revealed statistics that show a substantial increase in attacks on education in 2020, notwithstanding COVID-19-related school closures.

There were 2,400 documented attacks on education in 2020. This is a rise of 33 per cent since 2019. The statistics were published by Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack (GCPEA) of which EAA is a founding member.
EAA pointed out that international law already contains provisions for holding criminals accountable and requiring them to make restitution and compensation payments to victims. EAA fights for the enforcement of these international norms in order to provide justice to victims of educational assaults.
