1. Special Symposium on Education and Violent Political Conflict

      March 24,2009

      The spring 2009 issue of the Harvard Educational Review includes a special symposium on Education and Violent Political Conflict, in which eight authors consider the relationship between conflict and education by examining how schooling is used both to interrupt and to perpetuate violence. In this collection of essays, practitioners and scholars offer their perspectives on educational projects in select regions of the world currently embroiled in conflict. Here are the contents of the symposium:
