Open to distinguished scholars from the humanities, political and social sciences, education sciences or law who hold a Ph.D. and have excellent knowledge of English

Venue: Braunschweig, Germany

The Georg Eckert Institute for International Textbook Research (GEI) and the International Center for Transitional Justice
 (ICTJ) are pleased to announce the second Georg Arnhold International Summer School, exploring the theme of transitional justice and education: "Transitional Justice and Education: Engaging Children and Youth in Justice and Peacebuilding through Educational Media, Curricula and Outreach." It will take place in Braunschweig from June 22 to 27, 2015.
The Summer School will focus on educational media, curricula and curriculum reform, educational activities, and diverse actors such as teachers, NGOs, UN bodies, communities and governments in the context of transitional justice processes and policies. Particular emphasis will be placed on measures supporting a conflict-sensitive approach to coming to terms with past conflict and violence. In creating a bridge between the concepts of transitional justice and education for sustainable peace, the Georg Arnhold Summer School aims to reflect on lessons learned and explore innovative ways to help engage children and youth in justice and peacebuilding efforts through education, fostering their capacity for critical thinking and supporting their social and political empowerment and the social cohesion of the societies they live in.

Distinguished scholars from the humanities, political and social sciences, education sciences or law who hold a Ph.D. and have excellent knowledge of English may apply. Applicants must demonstrate outstanding academic or professional achievement in their fields. Individuals with extensive high-level international experience in government or non-governmental organizations or in international organizations may also apply.

No registration fees apply. Accommodation and meals will be provided for all participants and economy class travel expenses will be reimbursed.

The GEI and ICTJ invite suitable applicants to submit abstracts on their research project of no more than two pages together with a CV and (if applicable) a list of publications and the completed application form. Submissions should be made electronically. All documents must be in Word or PDF format and the total file size must not exceed 3 MB (file name: last name, first name).

Successful applicants will be notified by April 30, 2015.
