Peace-building Citizenship Learning in Contexts affected by Violence: School Connections with Life Experience in International Perspective

Principal Investigator:
Kathy Bickmore (OISE, University of Toronto)
Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC)
Project description:
The project responds to the need for research on how teaching and learning activities in schools might (but often do not) contribute to tangible peace-building citizenship consequences in the lives of students and, conversely, how the lived concerns and social participation experiences of young people might be engaged to improve the relevance and democratic power of school-based teaching and learning activities. This research has elicited students’ experiential understandings of social conflict and violence to provoke re-thinking of pedagogical practices.
