"Education under Attack 2010" reports incidents occurring in 32 Member States of the UN, ranging from the maiming of students on their way to school or the forced recruitment of child soldiers and suicide bombers, to the torture or killing of teachers and academics, to the total destruction of centres of learning. The study analyses targets and motives, as well as the impact of attacks - not only on education systems and learning outcomes but also on social, economic and political development. In addition, it examines measures taken to strengthen protection and prevention, and to end impunity for perpetrators of such attacks.
