Conflict and insecurity are among the most significant development challenges affecting children and youth in Pakistan. Recognizing the deterioration of social cohesion and the critical role of education in strengthening it, UNICEF Pakistan launched the Learning for Peace program in four conflict-affected districts.

In mid-2014, UNICEF Pakistan administered a Social Cohesion (SC) Survey among beneficiaries to gauge their “social cohesion score” across the five domains of social cohesion: 1) belonging and inclusion, 2) participation, 3) tolerance, 4) trust, and 5) recognition and legitimacy. The survey was followed by a participatory focus group discussion (PFGD) for a deep-dive of the trends identified in the survey.

The UNICEF team’s work with partners in those districts demonstrated how a sense of belonging and inclusion, lays the foundation for tolerance of “others” and the long-term outcomes of trust and sense of recognition and legitimacy.

Join us and Veronica Lee, Program Officer at UNICEF Pakistan, and Bosun Jang, M&E Officer of the UNICEF Learning for Peace Program, for a discussion of this important work Tuesday December 15th, 9:00AM EST!
