Learning Pedagogies and Peace Education: an exploratory study of decolonisation in South Africa and Uganda

Aims

Peace education is a vital tool for addressing conflict in Africa, but pedagogies and curricula are embedded in a wider liberal peacebuilding paradigm founded on Euro-centric values, principles and method.

This project is investigating how far contextually sensitive learning design, spearheaded by The Open University, can be used to develop decolonial peace education pedagogy in South Africa and Uganda.

Focusing on areas of forced displacement or refugee intake, beneficiaries will include refugees and migrants from neighbouring countries.

Inclusive Migration Policy through Evidence Cafes

Aims

Migration policy in Africa is fragmented and policymakers are hampered by weak data and lack of knowledge, undermining the potential for migration to contribute to inclusive growth. 

This project is creating a free online course on ‘evidence café methodology’ which has been successfully used in migration research to share perspectives of diverse stakeholders and fill knowledge gaps.

The short course will be for use by government officials, organisations, researchers and civil society organisations to advance African migration research, policy and planning.
