“The declaration envisages a number of obligations aimed at preventing and responding to attacks and the use of educational institutions for military purposes during an armed conflict. 89 states around the world have signed the document. These countries have already developed and started to successfully introduce approaches to the implementation of the declaration,” reads the report.

The document has been signed by the states where there are no military conflict, as well as states where armed aggression takes place. Since the declaration was opened for endorsement in May 2015, there have been changes in the policy of education in many countries during times of armed conflict, and their experience can be valuable to Ukraine.
