The USAID-funded Education in Crisis and Conflict Network (ECCN) is a community of practice composed of USAID education staff, implementing partners and others working to increase equitable access to, and improve the quality of, education in crisis and conflict affected environments. USAID ECCN was initiated to promote knowledge generation and sharing among practitioners, policy makers and researchers related to Goal 3 of the USAID Education Strategy: improved equitable access to education in crisis and conflict affected environments.

To help implement the USAID ECCN, the Center for International Education (CIE) works as a sub-contractor to the Education Development Center. The implementing team at CIE focuses on developing the research and evaluation activities within the project.

Part of their work supports the Inter Agency Accelerated Education Working Group (AEWG) and includes case studies on the application of their Principles in various settings. The case studies below highlight how contextual differences affect the application of the principles.
