Policy paper on education in a united Cyprus

THE ASSOCIATION for Historical Dialogue & Research (AHDR) has undertaken an intensive and all-inclusive process of developing a policy paper on how it envisions education in a multi-cultural, multi-lingual, and multi-faith society in Cyprus.

“Thanks to the many contributions from educators, researchers, education specialists and unionists, as well as a communications strategy in which all interested individuals and organisations had the opportunity to submit their views and ideas on the issue via various mediums, the final paper is now ready to be shared with the public,” said the local NGO.
A presentation will be held tomorrow at 7.15pm at the Home for Cooperation in the buffer zone in Nicosia, where the theoretical background of the paper, including its aims and scope will be shared.  Participants will be invited to take part in a discussion on how the recommendations included in the paper could have the maximum impact and be advocated to more people and key people.
The paper’s scientific editor Dr Michalinos Zembylas and AHDR Board President Dr Kyriakos Pachoulides will be also be present to take questions from the audience.

The discussion will be followed by a reception.

This initiative is based on the AHDR’s comprehensive research project, exploring history teachers’ views of the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot history curricula and textbooks used across the existing divide in Cyprus, as well as history teachers’ use of methods that promote, historical thinking in their teaching.
