The Education and Conflict Monitor is an initiative of the Education Above All Foundation working in collaboration with its partners including the Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack, Insecurity Insight, and Re-coded to collect, share and visualize data on education insecurity. Conflict and insecurity are no reasons to deprive individuals and communities of their right to safe, quality education. Our goal is to make accurate data available to decision-makers during armed conflict and in humanitarian situations to prevent further conflict, to protect the right to education, and to ensure that post-conflict societies can harness the power of education to build peace.

This dataset combines two sources of education-insecurity data:
Machine-learning-driven counts of tweets from Africa and the Middle East on the topic of education insecurity—in Arabic, English, and French—via the Artificial Intelligence for Disaster Response (AIDR) project
Human-curated reports of actual education-insecurity events in Africa and the Middle East, via the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data (ACLED) project.

This dataset is extracted from the 2018 edition of the Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack (GCPEA)’s flagship report, Education Under Attack. The report is the result of independent research conducted by GCPEA. Generous support for the report was provided by the Education Above All Foundation, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and an anonymous donor. Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health contributed in-kind research support. For more information, visit eua2018.protectingeducation.org or protectingeducation.org.
