Aceh Programs on Peace and Nonviolence
Dr. Asna Husin leads the Peace Education Program in Aceh. The program has two main components: Peacebuilding for Ulama (Islamic clerics) and Peace Education in the High Schools of Aceh. The civil war in Aceh has made the implementation of these programs both challenging and vital.
We have recently published a 366-page resource manual, entitled Kurikulum Pendidikan Damai: Perspectif Ulama Aceh (Peace Education Curriculum: An Ulama perspective). Ulama and activists in Aceh use the manual to strengthen their campaigns and conflict resolution initiatives.
Our conflict resolution education program in Aceh high schools uses the second edition of our resource manual, reaching students in more than 100 high schools.
