This article examines how to foster a comparative perspective of different approaches and challenges within the Global South. There is a specific focus on how teachers are able to mitigate inequality and reduce violence through the promotion of peace and social cohesion in different contexts. The aim is to identify and highlight measures and processes in the different contexts that speak to the role of teachers in the provision of education and teaching that contribute to social justice.
This work is part of ‘Engaging teachers in peacebuilding in postconflict contexts: evaluating education interventions’ project supported by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the UK Department for International Development.
