The IHJR is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with the European Association of History Educators (EUROCLIO) that will see our work adapted for education aimed at the youth in our target regions .
Beginning on January 1, 2014 and running for two years the agreement will see the work of the IHJR used by history educators in EUROCLIO’s member network.
The strategic partnership builds on the common mission of the IHJR and EUROCLIO around the responsible use of history education as a tool for conflict prevention.
EUROCLIO will use IHJR publications, which are currently freely available for download on our website, in the development of educational material targeted at the youth and for use in the Middle East and Europe.
The publications “Two Sides of the Coin: Independence and Nakba 1948”, “Haifa Before & After 1948: Narratives of a Mixed City”, “Zoom In: Palestinian Refugees of 1948, Remembrances” and “Sacred Sites in the Holy Land: Historical and Religious Perspectives” have all been selected and will be used as pilots.
