Children as Peacemakers in Divided Societies: Educational Approaches builds on previous IAIE conferences and focuses on the intersection of intercultural education and peace education. The intersectional approach becomes all the more vital at a time when intolerance and challenges to democratic principles, as well as ongoing wars worldwide, threaten to unravel the fabric of societies everywhere. The conference further connects to the fields of Multicultural Education, Human Rights Education, Citizenship Education, and Education for Democracy and Global Education. The international conference will enable teachers, students, and academics to exchange insights and experiences, all the while exposing them to state-of-the-art research on issues relating to peace, diversity, and education.

General Program

Saturday and Sunday, October 7 and 8, will consist primarily of workshops. These are aimed primarily, but not exclusively, at schoolteachers and pre-service teachers. More information on the workshops and the registration forms for them will be available at a date closer to the Conference.

The main academic conference will be held on Monday, October 9, and Tuesday, October 10, although additional workshops are planned on these dates as well.
