Horner, L.K, Kadiwal, L, Sayed, Y, Barrett, A, Durrani, N and Novelli, M (2015) Literature review: the role of teachers in peacebuilding.


In the context of debates relating to teachers’ role in educational outcomes, accountability and management, this literature review explores their potential to be active agents of peacebuilding. Specifically, the review aims to explore their role in promoting peace, reconciliation, social cohesion and violence mitigation, recognising that literature specifically relating to teachers and peacebuilding was limited. The review is based on a framework (Naylor and Sayed, 2014) which conceives teachers as active agents located in particular global, national and local policy contexts and structures.
