A comparative scoping review of the impact of international economic sanctions on education

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

While a lot of literature has debated the effectiveness of international economic sanctions on sanctioned countries, little is known about the state of research on the impact of economic sanctions on education. The purpose of this scoping review was to map the literature on the effects of international economic sanctions on education. Searches of eight electronic databases and the grey literature were conducted to identify published empirical studies. Six eligible studies were selected. This review observes the limited empirical research and data to provide a better understanding of how education systems are affected by economic sanctions, highlighting the lack of research and, consequently, educators’ voices on education in sanctioned societies. Utilising the scattered evidence, the article challenges concerned educators and researchers to avail empirical evidence to power so that the collateral damage being suffered by young people in sanctioned countries is recognised and hopefully mitigated.1
