Education for All: Solomon Islands - Background paper for the Education for all global monitoring report 2011, The hidden crisis: armed conflict and education
(uniquement en anglais)
Between 1998 and 2003, conflict, violent crime and severe economic downturn pushed the Solomon Islands state to the brink of failure, exacerbating the problems of an already struggling education sector. In 2003, the Regional Assistance Mission in Solomon Islands (RAMSI) interventionquickly restored security and stabilized government finances. Solomon Islands is now one of the world’s most aid dependent countries and remains vulnerable to external shocks and natural disasters. Weak economic forecasts suggest the need for additional external budget support to protect social spending, including on education.
