This one-day seminar will explore some of the theoretical and practical dimensions of educating for peace in conflict-affected environments. Experiences from Bosnia-Herzegovina will be shared as a stimulus for discussion. Conceptual themes of the day will include developmental perspectives on conflict and peace, the role of worldviews in conflict resolution strategies, and pedagogical dimensions of peacebuilding. Breakout and plenary sessions will be dedicated to collaborative exploration and application of these themes to participants’ own areas of focus. The seminar will appeal to those interested in issues of peace, conflict, strategies for addressing violence in communities and schools, post-conflict recovery, reconciliation, development, and educational philosophy.

Pre-registration is required. Please email Stella Rogers:
