Peace Education

Peace Education in Societies in Transition

This research group responds to the need to contribute to the prevention of (re)eruption of violence through the development of teachers’ conflict transformation competences, qualities, skills and attitudes in educational settings in societies in transition.

It creates an integrated framework for analysis for a peace education model for highly conflictive settings developed together with teachers and school directives, local and international universities as well as civil society peace and conflict actors in urban settings, currently with a particular focus on the cases of Medellin (Colombia) and Guadalajara (Mexico). Using an innovative holistic peace approach and fostering the creation of new technologies, this research group aims to diminish violence and improve the wellbeing of the educational community (students, teachers and staff) while making a contribution to the deeper transformation and sustainable peace in fragile societies.
