Armed conflicts cause damage to schools, educational process and violates the right to education outlined in Convention on the Rights of the Child, children are deprived of equal opportunities to receive education, armed conflicts perpetuate exclusion and poverty. However, once the armed conflict is over, the education system is still being challenged. The object of this publication – education systems in post-conflict settings. The author merges insights of other authors, who examine education system problems in post-conflict settings, and authors, who propose logic framework for prioritizing problems in post-conflict settings. Then adapted plausible (theoretic) model of prioritized education system problems is proposed. The model builds on the premise that institutions in post-conflict settings find themselves at the critical juncture, where they can initiate change. The premise corresponds to rational choice institutionalism ideas. Publication author employed documentary research and theoretic modelling methods.
