Online Forum: Educating for a Civil Society After Collective Violence
Please Join Us in an Important Online Forum: Educating for Civil Society After Collective Violence
This online forum invites reflection about education following collective violence. We will learn from the experiences in the following four case studies and discuss how the issues raised connect to our own lives and communities as we seek to strengthen civil societies.
How do educators confront the past and promote reconciliation in an effort to prevent future conflict? What are the opportunities and challenges facing educators in the aftermath of collective violence? What roles do schools, curricula and pedagogy play in the creation of civil societies?
Please join us for a facilitated, online conversation that will examine these questions through the exploration of four case studies from Germany, Rwanda, South Africa and Northern Ireland.
When? April 5-15, 2004
Who? Facing History staff, hundreds of educators, students and scholars
Why? Education is often an afterthought of transitional processes, yet it is crucial to the development and maintenance of civil society.
