For the review, we analyzed 151 publications about 93 distinct interventions. Then we classified 20 programs as successful, 29 as promising, 30 as emerging, and only 14 as ineffective. We focused our attention on five key thematic areas of the INSPIRE framework:
- Building life-skills and knowledge
- Building safe environments
- Addressing harmful gender norms
- Providing psycho-social support
- Promoting a whole school approach
The review highlights the importance of multicomponent, integrated interventions that address an expansive school environment and group-based learning. It calls attention to the need for offering leadership opportunities to school staff and learners alike. And it underscores the value of fostering an iterative attitude towards intervention development.
Notable interventions from the research are those developed by Coalition founding members Aulas en Paz (Classrooms for Peace) and Raising Voices (for their Good School Toolkit).
