Event description

Description

Most countries have a diverse population, with different ethnicities, religious groups, and often mother tongues and regional sources of livelihood. When economic or climatic pressures affect these groups differently, or there are political or religious tensions, there is a risk of insecurity and conflict.

Education can contribute to social tensions or be a healing factor – the two faces of education in ethnic conflict. How can the education sector, both at a system level and at the level of teacher development and pedagogy play its part in conflict prevention and peacebuilding?

This seminar will examine examples of promising practices, especially in relation to the revision and provision of education materials supportive of resilience and social cohesion, that may also help protect students against extremist narratives.

Through an interactive workshop, participants will draw on their own practitioner/research experiences to suggest areas for research/tool development around conflict-sensitive planning and curriculum materials to support contextualised approaches supportive of social cohesion. This will include reflection on the relationship between the different groups involved, such as education planners, curriculum developers, teacher educators, teachers, publishers, writers etc.
