Publications on Education and Peacebuilding by the Research Consortium

Reseach Consortium on Education and Peacebuilding

What is the role of education in peacebuilding? Three synthesis reports recently published by the Research Consortium on Education and Peacebuilding explore this topic, referencing findings from Myanmar, Pakistan, South Africa and Uganda.

The first report on integration of Education and Peacebuilding examines how education is included in peacebuilding and development frameworks. It compares, summarises and critically reflects how education policies and governance contribute to the peacebuilding process.

The second report, ‘The role of teachers in peacebuilding and social cohesion’, explores the role of teachers in peacebuilding and social cohesion. It discusses key issues, policies and governance aspects that relate to how teachers might contribute to peacebuilding and social cohesion processes.

The third report, ‘Youth Agency and Peacebuilding: An Analysis of the Role of Formal and Non-Formal Education’ discusses the ways in which the agency of youth – or their ‘space for manoeuvre’ – is impacted by formal and non-formal education interventions. It evaluates young peoples’ ability to contribute to processes of peacebuilding and social cohesion, either in political, socio-cultural or economic ways. It combines a focus on youth agency, peacebuilding and education – an intersection that is often not addressed simultaneously.
