Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This study highlights the important role that education can play in helping children and young people both to understand the violent past and to contribute to a shared and more peaceful future in societies emerging from conflict. In both Northern Ireland and Bosnia and Herzegovina, interviews were conducted with 24-25 year olds, 16-18 year olds and eleven year olds. The findings from this study provide insight into the experiences and perspectives of children and young people in both regions with regard to the role of education in reconciliation.
