The Role of Madrasas: Assessing Parental Choice, Financial Pipelines and Recent Developments in Religious Education in Pakistan & Afghanistan

Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportBogForskning

This book is the combined result of all three studies edited by the RDDC. The intention is to provide a more nuanced view on the role of madrasas in Afghanistan and Pakistan by addressing some of the core questions pertaining to these institutions: Why do Pakistani parents decide to send their children to madrasas instead of public schools? From which sources do the Pakistani madrasas generate their funding, and how dependent are they on this funding? What are recent developments and which groups run madrasas in Afghanistan? This book presents the findings from the extensive data-collection conducted by CRSS, PICSS, and CAPS and concludes by offering a set of recommendations concerning which elements continued reforms of the madrasas should strive to incorporate to provide progressive solutions in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
