Decolonising Education for Peace in Africa (DEPA) is addressing the question: What are the different knowledges and values underpinning peace and how can these practices be connected and compared across countries to create curriculum content and mode of delivery in informal and formal settings, Secondary and Higher Education (HE), in order to decolonise peace education?
Operating across 5 countries for the first phase – Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda, Zimbabwe and the UK - the project is, for the first time, providing new data based on Arts and Humanities methodologies on how peace is understood within displaced and marginalised communities. Researchers, community workers and communities that have experienced conflict are connecting to produce state of the art knowledge. The DEPA project has funded an additional 8 projects, extending into Algeria, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique and Sierra Leone.
A Network that is amplifying and enhancing African knowledges on peace education and embeding these in teaching research on peace.
Proof of Concept Projects across 4 African countries have created a Network to enable local knowledge and values of peace which is being incorporated into peace education and training.

DEPA’s research approach was born from the Proof of Concept projects in the first instance, followed by the commissioned projects, using participatory arts research methods.
Using Learning Design approaches, creating Open Educational Resources (OERs) to develop and deliver teaching materials to young people who have had interrupted study due to conflict.
