This policy brief deals with the issue of making schools, pupils and teachers safe from exposure to political violence during elections. The brief builds upon previous research carried out by RAU, and the recent (related) decision by the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission to protect children from attending political meetings.
The brief outlines the risks for children and teachers and recommends that the Zimbabwe Government declare all schools as safe zones, free from any political activity, during the forthcoming elections and beyond. Additionally, the brief recommends that the Government endorse, with 74 other countries, the Safe Schools Declaration of the Global Campaign to Protect Schools under Attack.
