Event Details

For our first seminar in the 2015/2016 Network for Research in Education, Conflict and Emergencies annual seminar series, Rob Williams OBE, CEO of War Child UK, will discuss the effects of failing to fund education in emergency and chronic conflict situations. He will look at why so many children in conflict zones miss out on school and the impact this has. Using the Syrian refugee crisis as a case study, Rob will illustrate the far reaching implications of failing to fund education, before going on to examine the various proposals for solving the issue, including the idea of a Global Fund for Education. 


Rob Williams is Chief Executive of War Child, a UK based charity that promotes child protection, education and livelihoods in a range of countries affected by war, including Afghanistan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Rob worked in emergency response in Africa and Asia for many years, with Save the Children, the British Red Cross and Concern Worldwide. Rob was awarded an OBE in 2014 for services to protecting and improving the lives of children, including those affected by conflict overseas.
