Decolonising Peace Education in Africa

Decolonising Education for Peace in Africa

Home > Projects


The Decolonising Education for Peace in Africa project (DEPA) is, through a multi-faceted approach, developing
 a network of projects, educators, researchers, policymakers, NGO’s and other stakeholders. 

The project aims to have a direct long-term impact by providing the first set of research and teaching
 materials which are produced through a South-North partnership to alter research and teaching in peace education from a global South perspective. Researchers will have a lasting resource as the data will be archived for free, easy re-use.
