Educating for a Civil Sociey After a Collective Violence
Date: April 5-15, 2004
Location: http://www.facinghistory.org (on-line forum)
Education is often an afterthought of transitional processes, yet it is crucial to the development and maintenance of civil society. Facing History staff, hundreds of educators, students and scholars will 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 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.
