F. Moleres / Panos Pictures
Since the end of the Cold War, the concept of security has been redefined and broadened, recognising that the security of states and the security of people are interdependent. As a result social, political and economic needs have been brought into the context of peace and stability, and donors and multilateral organisations have identified important links between development and security.

This key issues page examines the delivery of education in states that can be described as "fragile". It aims to provide a starting point for discussion on education in fragile states, and specifically provides literature on service delivery and aid effectiveness in fragile states, looks at why donors should focus investment on education in fragile states, and examines how this should be done.
