Transitional Justice and Education - Learning Peace, Paperback / softback Book

Transitional Justice and Education - Learning Peace Paperback / softback

Edited by Clara Ramirez-Barat, Roger Duthie


After periods of conflict and authoritarianism, educational institutions often need to be reformed or rebuilt.

But in settings where education has been used to support repressive policies and human rights violations, or where conflict and abuses have resulted in lost educational opportunities, legacies of injustice may pose significant challenges to effective reform.

Peacebuilding and development perspectives, which normally drive the reconstruction agenda, pay little attention to the violent past.

Transitional Justice and Education: Learning Peace presents the findings of a research project of the International Center for Transitional Justice on the relationship between transitional justice and education in peacebuilding contexts.

The book examines how transitional justice can shape the reform of education systems by ensuring programs are sensitive to the legacies of the past, how it can facilitate the reintegration of children and youth into society, and how education can engage younger generations in the work of transitional justice.
