Peace Education in the Middle Belt Region in Nigeria

In many African States, churches have a great potential to practice and to foster peace education. A survey was conducted in Nigeria to look at peace education carried out by churches connected with GKKE members. In order to deal with the complexity of the conflict situation in Nigeria, the GKKE expert group decided to limit itself to the “Middle Belt” region, i.e. mainly Plateau State and adjoining states, and to the topic of youth and education. Based on these interviews, but also on experiences in neighbouring African countries, four theses on peace and education work in the Middle Belt region were formulated which yet need further review and discussion.
