Abstract In recent years, the role of education in War Child programmes has been a topic of increasing attention. In current War Child programmes, beneficiaries and their communities often prioritise educational activities. While in some programmes, components of education were included, no official position or policy was developed. In January 2005, during the HQ Operations strategic sessions in Balk, the signal was given to investigate and propose strategies on education within War Child programmes. The Management & Methodology Week 2005 gave the opportunity to investigate current practice in War Child programmes and explore possibilities to elaborate and expand this component. At the end of 2005, assessments on possibilities for complementary education in the Sierra Leone and DRC programmes were carried out, and education activities were set up in Sierra Leone and Uganda. In 2006, a connection was made with the Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE). Taken together, this laid the foundation for a State of the Art on Education in War Child Programmes. The intent of this paper is to further advance the inclusion and expansion of various educational activities in War Child’s programmes.
