New Report Highlights Facing History’s Effectiveness in Transitional Justice Education
The New York-based International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ) has featured Facing History and Ourselves in a newly-released report as a model for teaching about the challenges societies face as they attempt to heal, repair, and rebuild after genocide or other instances of mass violence.
“An outstanding example of materials for teachers can be found in the work of the U.S.-based organization Facing History and Ourselves, which for over 30 years has developed methods to assist educators all over the world to effectively incorporate civic education into curricula,” reads the November, 2012, report Engaging Children and Youth in Transitional Justice Processes: Guidance for Outreach Programs.
The report aims to strengthen outreach programs for transitional justice by examining ways to include children and youth in transitional justice processes. ICTJ works to redress and prevent the most severe violations of human rights by confronting legacies of mass abuse.
