The development of innovative and practical supplementary educational materials for educators and young people is one of major initiatives of the Association. It is our objective that such materials will help to foster multiperspectivity, historical understanding and critical thinking amongst educators and students.
Ideas described in AHDR's History Education Reform Proposal and Policy Paper on Education provide the basis and guiding principles of our work: how the AHDR sees history education, and how it envisions education in a multicultural, multilingual, and multi-faith society in Cyprus. Available in English, Greek and Turkish.
In the context of AHDR’s efforts to promote a Culture of Peace through education at a local, national and international level, the organization has engaged in a series of Peace Education projects and activities. These have showcased the impact of deconstructing stereotypes and increasing contact in creating a paradigm shift in education as a prerequisite for laying the foundations for sustainable peace.
The AHDR received three prestigious international awards: Europa Nostra 2014 Conservation Award, celebrating and aiming to promote excellence in cultural heritage work, Max Van der Stoel Award in 2016 in recognition of extraordinary achievements aimed at improving the position of national minorities in the area of the OSCE and the 2018 Seán MacBride Peace Prize in recognition of its outstanding work for peace, disarmament, human rights.
