TRANSFORMING THE SYMMETRY OF CONFLICT IN DIVIDED SOCIETIES: DEVELOPING SYSTEMIC FRAMEWORKS FOR PEACEBUILDING EDUCATION IN CYPRUS
Dr. Johnson will discuss her work as a Fulbright Scholar in Cyprus, a country ethnopolitically divided for over 30 years as a result of violent conflict. Her work is aimed at developing systemic frameworks for training educators, counselors and community leaders in peacebuilding. Her work has incorporated bicommunal initiatives across the Turkish Muslim Cypriot and Greek Orthodox Cypriot communities. In this CTSE session, she will talk about the challenges encountered while working bicommunally to promote peacebuilding education in hegemonically entrenched systems.
