Building Cultures Of Peace In Rwandan Schools
The overarching theme of this network was to develop a shared understanding of what policies and practices lead to “cultures of positive peace” in Rwandan primary and secondary schools. The purpose of the network is to bring together researchers from multiple disciplines, with policy-makers, practitioners and children themselves, to develop shared understandings around what Positive Peace would look like in the context of Rwandan primary and secondary schools. It also intends to enhance the capacity of researchers and practitioners in Rwanda to continue to address these issues through evidence-based research and practice. It aims finally at de-colonizing global knowledge in this field, amplifying the voices of Rwandan researchers within International and Comparative Education Studies.
Research seminars are organized by thematic working groups to facilitate discussions with influential stakeholders via policy seminar and per one thematic area.
The international conference intends to support network members to present their work and research findings at major conferences by also promoting the network.
