International Program

We partner with educational leaders, civil society organizations, departments and ministries of education, and intergovernmental organizations across the world to address historical injustices and their legacies, social divisions, racism, sectarianism, antisemitism, and other forms of identity-based hatred. Our work nurtures democracy and fosters just, equitable, and inclusive societies.

Follow us @FHGlobal

Educators use Facing History and Ourselves resources and methods to teach civics, humanities, history, and English Language Arts courses as well as subjects specific to their national curricula, and students participate in Facing History and Ourselves courses which support their civic and ethical development.

With our partners, we have:

  • developed country-wide programs and national curricular reforms. 
  • convened global summits with education leaders on pressing topics, including democracy and education, facing the violent past and its legacies, and transitional justice.
  • led research and written extensively on adolescent civic development in divided societies and the role of education in transitional justice.
  • launched country-wide civil society programs to confront identity-based hatred, including racism, antisemitism, and homophobia.
  • supported system-wide and whole school work to create racially equitable, inclusive, and just learning environments.
  • worked with intergovernmental organizations to address global citizenship, Holocaust education, antisemitism, countering violent extremism, and facing the violent past through history education.

Some of the Places We Work

We partner with Shikaya to support educators, school leaders, and administrators to create classrooms, schools, and systems that nurture a vibrant multiracial democracy.

With Corrymeela, we help teachers address the violent past and divisions within Northern Irish society to build an inclusive democracy.

We develop partnerships across the education system and with civil society organizations to improve school climate and address current and historic intergroup conflict.
