‘Joining Up: Reconciliation and Education’

‘Joining Up: Reconciliation and Education’

‘Joining Up’ is a collaborative initiative by CRIS and The Corrymeela Community that documents key learning on the journey of reconciliation and education in Northern Ireland. Reflections have been collated through a series of shared learning events with stakeholders from the Third Sector, Academics, Schools, DENI, EA, support bodies and ETI and are presented as digital Case Studies and an academic paper.

As part of Good Relations Week 2019, we are launching 5 case studies and an academic paper to stimulate innovation and dialogue on the role and place of reconciliation in education. The good practice that is represented highlights inspirational work involving members of whole school communities across Northern Ireland.

This academic paper by Dr Norman Richardson, Honorary Fellow at Stranmillis College, reflects on the journey of education and reconciliation, in Northern Ireland, over a 40 year period. ACADEMIC PAPER DOWNLOAD LINK
