The Georg Eckert Institute for International Textbook Research (GEI) and the International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ) are pleased to announce the second Georg Arnhold International Summer School on Education for Sustainable Peace on the theme of “Transitional Justice and Education: Engaging Children and Youth in Justice and Peace building through Educational Media, Curricula and Outreach.”
The Summer School will focus on educational media, curricula and curriculum reform, educational activities, and diverse actors such as teachers, NGOs, UN bodies, communities and governments in the context of transitional justice processes and policies. Particular emphasis will be placed on measures supporting a conflict-sensitive approach to coming to terms with past conflict and violence. In creating a bridge between the concepts of transitional justice and education for sustainable peace, the Georg Arnhold Summer School aims to reflect on lessons learned and explore innovative ways to help engage children and youth in justice and peace building efforts through education, fostering their capacity for critical thinking and supporting their social and political empowerment and the social cohesion of the societies they live in.
The GEI and ICTJ thus invite original contributions that draw upon diverse contexts, theories and methods to shed new light on questions that include, but are not restricted to, the following four major sets of issues (see the Call for Papers for more information on relevant research questions):
- Conflict-Sensitive Curricula and Curriculum Reform as Part of Transitional Justice Policies
- Educational Media and Materials
- Educational Activities in the Context of Transitional Justice Processes
- Involving and Coordinating Stakeholders in Transitional Justice Education Programs
