Presented by NYU Wagner's International Public Service Association and the Wagner Education Policy Studies Association Student Groups.

Education is often talked about as a driver of development and a panacea for post-conflict regions. But what specifically do education programs in developing and post-conflict countries entail? What innovations have been designed and implemented to help build communities, spur production and promote stability? How do some of these models differ across regions and what impact have they had? Join us for a night of lively discussion with representatives from organizations that operate in the field of international education.
