From Divisive Stereotypes to Inclusive Identities: The Role of Educational Materials in Crisis and Conflict-Affected Settings

March 5 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Educational materials, such as textbooks, are fundamental sources from which children and youth develop perceptions of themselves and the societies to which they belong. When such key educational texts include divisive and discriminatory representations or omissions about the past and present, they can reinforce divisions between ‘us’ and ‘them’ and set the stage for conflict and violence. The role of textbooks in perpetuating or overcoming divisive stereotypes, whether in the domain of ethnicity, ‘race,’ gender, or another identity category, must not be underestimated. This webcast aims to examine different approaches to reducing divisive content and promoting inclusive identities within textbooks and other educational media.
