At School in Syria: Education under barrel bombs – SOAS, Monday 15 February, 7pm

For anyone who missed our recent event in Parliament, there is another chance to hear about schools in Syria, and particularly Aleppo, this coming Monday evening.

At School in Syria: Education under barrel bombs
7:00 to 9:00pm, Monday 15th February,
Room 116 First Floor, School of Oriental and African Studies, Russell Square, WC1H 0XG.


  • Marcell Shehwaro of Kesh Malek (Check Mate), on running schools in rebel-held Aleppo.
  • Heba Ajami, on the state of the education system in Syria.

A Save the Children report on education in Syria published in September 2015 found that 3 million Syrian children were not in education, that 25% of Syria's schools had been damaged or destroyed, and that over four hundred teaching staff had been killed. The majority of the destruction is caused by aerial bombardment.

This event will be a rare chance to hear directly about the difficulties of running schools under these most hostile conditions, where schools have to go underground, and teachers have to preserve anonymity for fear of reprisals.

Meeting capacity: 40.
