The AHDR and our work in Peace Education
The AHDR is a unique multi-communal, non-for-profit, non-governmental organization established in Nicosia in 2003 which is based at the Home for Cooperation in Nicosia. Since its establishment, the AHDR has been promoting critical thinking, historical dialogue and multiperspectivity, especially through its History Education research, projects, publications and events. In the last few years, in the context of the organization’s efforts to promote a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence through education, at a local, national and international level, the AHDR has also 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 implementation of Peace Education projects derives from the recognition, by the AHDR, of the necessity to respond to the educational needs of teachers, students and the society at large in relation to Education for a Culture of Peace as well as to the urgency to highlight the importance of peace and non-violence and increased inter-communal contact for constructing alternative futures for the generations to come. All the above prescribe the implementation of innovative programs and initiatives. It is an imperative for the AHDR to assist educational stakeholders, mainly students and teachers, in redefining the use of terms such as social justice, compassion, solidarity, peace and conflict and deconstruct the ‘friend-enemy’ logic. In this framework, our work on Peace Education focuses on:
Interns provide support with the implementation of the Peace Education projects of the AHDR and are supported by our team in developing skills in educational research, project implementation and event organization. Interns engage in both educational and logistical tasks and are expected to work on a wide range of projects. Interns will also assist with the design and implementation of events.
