Innocent children, women and elderly people – who cannot protect themselves – were massacred. Village after village has been burned to the ground. And three young girls were sent to their deaths with explosives strapped to their bodies in so-called suicide bombings that killed scores of civilians.
Nous ne pouvons nous résigner aux conflits au Moyen-Orient. Voilà l’idée centrale de la longue lettre que le Pape François a adressée ce mardi aux chrétiens de la région. Dans ce texte, le Pape rappelle son voyage en Terre Sainte et la rencontre de prière au Vatican avec les présidents israélien et palestinien. François lance ensuite une invitation à «prier pour la paix au Moyen-Orient». «Que ceux qui ont été contraints de quitter leurs terres, peut-on lire, puissent y revenir et y vivre dans la dignité et la sécurité.» Concrètement, le Pape François demande de renforcer l’assistance humanitaire en mettant toujours au centre le bien de la personne et de chaque pays. Le Saint-Père fait l’éloge également en particulier de travail de la Caritas et des organisations caritatives pour «aider toutes les populations sans préférences».

Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai, who won the Nobel Peace Prize — and was shot in the head by the Taliban — for advocating girls’ education, told President Barack Obama he could “change the world” if only he’d send books instead of guns to other countries, she said Tuesday. “My message was very simple,” Malala, who is now 17, said Tuesday at the Forbes Under 30 Summit in Philadelphia, speaking of her recent meeting with the president. “I said instead of sending guns, send books. Instead of sending weapons, send teachers.” Asked by the host, Ronan Farrow of MSNBC, how Obama reacted, she said simply that his response was “pretty political.”
Transitional justice practitioners, researchers, and educators will gather next week at the International Center for Transitional Justice headquarters in New York to explore the connections between transitional justice and education in peacebuilding contexts. The expert roundtable, to be held on October 21st and 22nd, is part of a collaboration between ICTJ’s Research Unit and UNICEF seeking to develop innovative strategies to prevent recurrence of human rights abuses through education and children and youth participation.
The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2014 is to be awarded to Kailash Satyarthi and Malala Yousafzay for their struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education. Children must go to school and not be financially exploited. Despite her youth, Malala Yousafzay has already fought for several years for the right of girls to education, and has shown by example that children and young people, too, can contribute to improving their own situations. This she has done under the most dangerous circumstances. Through her heroic struggle she has become a leading spokesperson for girls’ rights to education.

L’école donne l’opportunité de mettre ensemble les enfants de différentes communautés pendant une période relativement longue. Ce temps doit être mis à profit pour faire passer au sein des jeunes de 6 à 17 ans les messages de paix, estiment le gouvernement et ses partenaires, qui veulent mettre sur pied une stratégie nationale d’éducation pour la paix en RDC. L’élaboration de cette stratégie a été lancée samedi 20 septembre à Goma par la vice-ministre de l’éducation, Maggy Rwakabuba.
Le gouvernement du Soudan du Sud a signé en 2012 avec les Nations Unies un plan d’action pour mettre un terme à l’utilisation d’enfants-soldats. Pourtant, il s’avère que le conflit en cours compromet les progrès réalisés en la matière.
As children around the world prepare to head ‘back to school’ the unprecedented number of ongoing emergencies are devastating education systems for millions of children. About 58 million children are currently out of school and half of those are missing out because of conflict.

he kidnapping of more than 200 girls from a secondary school in Chibok in northeastern Nigeria’s Borno State in April by Boko Haram militants, and a so far unsuccessful high-profile campaign to free them, exemplifies the insecurity-driven education crisis in the area. Since March all public schools have been closed in Borno State - one of the three states in the northeast hardest hit by the violence.
In the past few months we have heard increasing incidences of social conflicts, peace and security instability, which has caused a number of people to free their households, while hundreds of them have died, injured as well as lost their properties.
