2016 - 2019 Learning Communities for Peace project. Graphics by Designature.

The EU faces a complex of crises – an influx of refugees, and threats from terrorism and radicalisation. At the same time, many urban areas suffer from structural inequalities and often dysfunctional integration policies. The resulting tensions have intensified the fear of difference. The erosion of trust particularly affects strongly migrant communities and the schools within them.

In this context, how can such schools and the communities surrounding them engage in the kind of sustained dialogue, integration and peacebuilding that is so urgently needed?

This project aims to identify, develop, test and evaluate Learning Communities for Peace (LCP) approaches in four primary schools in urban areas of high tension in four European countries (Sweden, Croatia, Greece, UK), so as to improve the climate within the schools as well as the ‘living together’ in the wider community.
