Education Insecurity in the Central African Republic: Case study of the rebel-held city Ndélé

The ongoing conflict in the Central African Republic (CAR) is rooted in unequal access to economic opportunities, public goods, and security and justice. Predominantly Muslim areas have been particularly marginalised by the capital-based elites who run the state.

Our qualitative research showed the factors that explain Ndélé’s relative success, but also important dynamics that put the story into perspective.
