What are the different knowledges and values that underpin peace in Africa?
How can these practices be connected and compared across countries to decolonise African peace education?
The Decolonising Education for Peace in Africa (DEPA) project answers these questions using Arts and Humanities methodologies and, for the first time, provides new data on how peace is understood within displaced and marginalised communities across the continent.
State-of-the-art knowledge has been gathered by connecting researchers with artists and activists, educators, community workers and communities that have experienced conflict across Africa - to create curriculum content for both informal and formal settings, as well as Secondary and Higher Education (HE).
Learn more about the aims of the Decolonising of Peace Education in Africa (DEPA) project.
Projects across 14 African countries have created a network to enable local knowledges and values of peace, which is being incorporated into peace education and training.
DEPA, through a combination of multi-disciplinary international collaboration and participatory design processes, is widening access to quality peace education.
Stay up to date with the latest DEPA news and events.
The DEPA project creates a broad range of materials and resources, from photographs, videos, theatre productions, and exhibitions to educational outputs, such as Open Educational Resources (OER).
