Between July 2014 and June 2016 the 'Research Consortium on Education and Peacebuilding', a partnership between UNICEF; University of Amsterdam, the University of Sussex and Ulster University, conducted research in 4 partner countries to investigate the role of education in peacebuilding in post-conflict societies.
The research formed part of the 'Learning for Peace' initiative, which aimed "to strengthen resilience, social cohesion and human security in conflict-affected contexts, including countries at risk of, or experiencing and recovering from, conflict".
The research was conducted in Myanmar, Pakistan, South Africa, and Uganda. In each context, three topic areas were addressed:
- The integration of education into peacebuilding processes at global and country Levels
- The role of teachers in peacebuilding
- The role of formal and non-formal peacebuilding education programmes targeting youth
