This research explores the complex interrelationship between conflict and private sector participation through a case study of the education of Syrian refugees. Conducted in mid-2016 to early-2017, our study sought to better understand: (a) which private entities are engaging in Syrian refugee education in Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey; (b) the activities through which private companies and foundations support education; and (c) the rationales and motivations that drive their involvement. Our study sheds light on areas for concern and limitations to the assumed capacity of the private sector to understand and work within rapidly evolving humanitarian contexts.
