[Arabic Version] The Safe Schools Declaration

This is an inter-governmental political commitment to protect students, teachers, schools, and universities from the worst effects of armed conflict. It is the only international agreement dedicated to the protection of education in armed conflict.

The Declaration builds a community of nations committed to respecting the civilian nature of schools and developing and sharing examples of good practices for protecting schools and universities during armed conflict. It offers guidance on concrete measures that armed forces and armed non-state actors can take to deter military use of educational facilities, to reduce the risk of attack, and to mitigate the impact of attacks and military use when they do occur.
