CONRES 628 - Conflict, Peace and Education

3 Credit(s) | Lecture | Graded
Course can be counted for credit once

The fundamental premise of this course is that education, broadly defined, has the potential to contribute to transformation of conflict, just as it can contribute to the perpetuation of violence and structural inequalities. Over the course of the semester, we will explore the potential role of education in peace building and conflict transformation as well as its role in maintaining and furthering conflict. We will do this by discussing education practice and policy, drawing on examples in formal, non-formal and informal education settings. We will also address both substance and pedagogy in the educational realm and how these can serve to maintain or transform conflict.
