The  term  “emergency  education”  is  used  at  inter-agency  level  to  refer  to  education  in  situations  where children  lack  access  to  their  national  education  systems,  due  to  man-made  crises  or  natural  disasters.  Its precise interpretation varies, from a concern with emergency education during the first few months after a crisis, to the years taken to restore normal education systems after a “complex humanitarian emergency”. In  UNHCR  “emergency  response”  is  technically  a  matter  of  months,  essentially  referring  to  the  time required to get the organization’s normal systems in place and operational. However, the tasks set forth in the education section of the UNHCR Handbook for Emergencies (UNHCR, 1999a: 106–109) take longer than  this.  UNHCR  also  recognizes  that  mass  repatriation,  albeit  welcome,  can  create  what  is  termed  an “emergency-like situation” requiring “emergency-like” support. Almost all UNHCR education assistance is “emergency education” in the broad sense of the term, as used by many other organizations.
