Part of the mission of the Peace Education Hub is to encourage young researchers to explore the relevance of the close collaboration of formal and non-formal education in the spreading of peace values, especially in a fragile post-conflict society such as Bosnia and Herzegovina. On 26 February 2024, we were happy to meet Danae Driessen, a student of Erasmus Mundus International Master in Central and East European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies, currently taking courses at the Faculty of Political Sciences, University of Sarajevo.

As part of her research on reconciliation in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the importance of the cooperation of international and Bosnian organisations in the reconciliation process, we shared experiences of the Peace Education Hub with Danae Driessen in the hope of contributing to her research and a better understanding of the importance of supporting teachers to become agents of peace.
