Kenya has experienced recurrent intergroup conflicts primarily over political power and resources the nature of which have left it vulnerable to outbreaks of violence during elections. Security is also threatened by attacks from violent groups such as Al Shabaab, recruiting both externally and within Kenya’s borders. Education is both affected by and has a potential role in responding to these threats through addressing historically-embedded tensions and marginalization along ethnic and religious lines and reversing uneven development across regions.This research, involving two country case studies in Kenya and South Sudan, explores the relationship between education sector management, inequity, conflict and peacebuilding. Funded and commissioned by UNICEF’s Eastern and Southern Regional Office (ESARO) as part of their global Peacebuilding Education and Advocacy (PBEA) programme, the research in Kenya was led by Ulster University with support from colleagues in the University of Glasgow, Universitat de Barcelona, Strathmore Governance Centre, Nairobi, and the University of Nairobi.
