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.
Distinguished scholars from the humanities, political and social sciences, education sciences or law who hold a Ph.D. and have excellent knowledge of English may apply. Applicants must demonstrate outstanding academic or professional achievement in their fields. Individuals with extensive high-level international experience in government or non-governmental organizations or in international organizations may also apply.
The organisers will provide accommodation, food and travel costs for the duration of the conference.
