This document is an attempt to open a dialogue among educators working in the area of complex emergencies. It recognizes that most of the newly tested educational interventions lack a long-term perspective. Education, whether for peace and reconciliation or in the reconstruction of human resources, is hardly addressed at present. The case studies described here provide a vivid account of an approach using kits. Clearly, different contexts and levels of emergency warrant different kinds of response. Thus, there is the need for further research from field experiences, especially at the levels of rehabilitation of formal education systems and curricula and of adult learning.
