at the Association for Historical Dialogue and Research (AHDR)

The Association for Historical Dialogue and Research (AHDR)is a unique multi-communal, non-for-profit, non-governmental organization established in Nicosia in 2003. The AHDR envisions a society where dialogue on issues of history, historiography and history teaching and learning is considered a means for the advancement of understanding and critical thinking and is welcomed as an integral part of democracy and a culture of peace. Towards this end, the AHDR provides access access to learning opportunities for individuals of every ability and every ethnic, religious, cultural, and social background, based on the respect for diversity and the dialogue of ideas. Since its establishment, the AHDR has broadened its mission by promoting peace education in formal and non-formal settings and is currently bringing together school children, youth and teachers from all communities on the island; in this context, the AHDR has received acclaim from the UN Secretary General and international organizations for its role in promoting contact and cooperation between the future generations of Cyprus.
Background to AHDR’s work on Peace Education/ Education for a Culture of Peace: 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 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 recognizing the necessity to respond to the educational needs of teachers, students and the society at large in relation to 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 sustainable 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:
