Special Research Project

Faculty and graduates of the International Education and Applied Statistics programs are renowned for their decades of research and teaching in education in emergencies and many of our projects reflect these efforts. The Journal on Education in Emergencies (JEiE), for example, is a double-blind, peer reviewed academic journal founded in 2014 by the Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) and housed at New York University’s International Education Program and Center for Practice and Research at the Intersection of Information, Society, and Methodology (PRIISM). In addition to research articles, field notes, and book reviews, we produce a podcast, Behind the Pages, which features interviews with JEiE authors who describe their research, fieldwork, and new innovations in EiE programming.
