The Role of Education in Building Peaceful Societies: Lessons from Somalia

Wednesday, 28 January 2015 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm

Talk with with Professor Frank Hardman from the University of York.
Building on a conflict analysis of the three zones of Somalia, this talk discusses potential entry points for education in addressing the identified drivers of conflict. First, it will begin with a look at the way conflict has influenced the way education has developed in the region of Somalia and the way it has contributed to the conflict dynamics across the three zones. Secondly, it will discuss the different conflict drivers that were identified in the detailed analysis of each of the three zones. Finally, it will discuss policies and interventions that are needed to address the drivers of conflict and contribute to conflict prevention, social transformation, civic engagement and economic progress.
