ICIP's Declaration on the International Day of Peace

To coincide with the celebration of the International Day of Peace held on the 21st of September, ICIP publicised its annual institutional declaration which outlines the priorities of the Institute for the coming months. Its title, 'Educating for peace, Building Peace', emphasises the importance of education in peacebuilding. "Educating for peace and building peace are two inseparable elements. Both mean working in the very long term by generating empathy, formulating convictions of peace and democracy, internalising procedures and changing, in a positive sense, certain deeply rooted cultural practices."

With this declaration, ICIP will situate peace education at the centre of its activities during the coming school year through publishing new work, by organising a seminar and through a joint project with the Norwegian PRIO Centre on imagined sovereignties.
