Sadaka Education Resource
‘Palestine & Israel – How will there be a Just Peace?'
How will there be a Just Peace?'
This resource is intended to support young people in critically exploring conflict and peace building
within a framework of Human Rights and International Law. Looking specifically at the Palestinian/
Israeli situation, the resource provides an opportunity for students to increase their knowledge and
understanding, develop their skills of critical analysis, and share the experiences of those working
towards a peaceful outcome. Using a variety of active learning methodologies, the resource enables students to:
- Understand the origins of the situation and the current barriers to peace
- Learn about the role of international law and the United Nations in protecting human rights
- Experience the work of peace activists, both Palestinian and Israeli
- Develop their own peace proposals
This resource is an important development in helping post-primary students throughout the island of Ireland to explore the Palestinian Israeli situation within the context of Human Rights and International Law. The resource addresses key issues underlying the origins of the conflict and current obstacles to bringing about a just peace.
'Palestine & Israel – How will there be a Just Peace?' was produced as a joint initiative between Sadaka and the CDVEC Curriculum Development Unit ‘Education for Reconciliation’ Initiative. It is available for use as an education resource through Ireland - through Citizenship Education in Transition Year (South) and Key Stage 4 (Northern Ireland).
'Palestine & Israel – How will there be a Just Peace?' was launched by Roger Waters (founding member of Pink Floyd) together with the authors, Sadaka board members and members of the CDVEC Curriculum Development Unit, at the Royal Irish Academy in Dublin on 17th September 2013.
