Conflict Transformation in the Classroom: Ideas from Rwandan Reconciliation Initiatives

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The objective of this session is first and foremost to encourage a creative approach to conflict transformation in the classroom by highlighting pathways for healing in post-genocide Rwanda. This session will outline the history of Rwanda and focus on research conducted in Mbyo Reconciliation Village, where perpetrators and survivors of the genocide live together. Discussing the underpinnings of conflict resolution from the perspective of individuals like John Paul Lederach and Gandhi, participants will be given the opportunity to brainstorm mechanisms for resolving conflict in the classroom through active listening practices, simulations, and group discussions. The hope of this session is that participants might walk away with practical tools for facing classroom conflict, and broaden their perspectives of conflict as barrier, to conflict as opportunity.
