The aim of the project is to produce digital resources on education in Afghanistan as part of the Bloomsbury Education and Childhood Studies - an authoritative digital resource on the state of education systems as well as the nature of childhood and youth experience around the world, authored by an international team of academics.
For each country covered, the resource will include articles on a range of topics in four levels of education, defined according to the UNESCO’s International Standard Classification of Education 2011 (ISCED):
- Early Childhood Education (ISCED 0)
- Primary Education (ISCED 1)
- Secondary Education (ISCED 2 and 3)
- Higher Education (ISCED 6, 7, and 8)
The following two sections will explore the nature of childhood and youth experience in a particular country from birth until the age of 21.
- Childhood (age 0 – 12)
- Youth (age 13 – 21)
Articles will be between 1,000 to 1,500 words plus references and recommendations for further reading.
