ICTY Legacy Dialogues: From the tribunal to the classroom – How to Deal with the Yugoslav Wars in History Education

On the 30th January 2017, the ICTY Outreach Program and EUROCLIO (The European Association of History Educators) will bring together history education practitioners, textbook and curricula experts, members of civil society and active voices with the public debate at the Museon in The Hague. The afternoon will be part of the ICTY legacy dialogues and will be centered on the question ‘Why should, and how can the wars of the 1990s in the former Yugoslavia be addressed in history education?’
A first panel composed of curricula specialists , formal education experts and textbook developers from the region will discuss the challenges, lessons learned and achievements 25 years after the beginning of the wars. A second panel, co-organised by Pax for Peace, will shift its focus to the case of the Netherlands, and will look into how the case of Srebrenica and Dutchbat has been integrated within Dutch history education. How is this sensitive history being addressed in formal education? What possibilities are there for teachers to integrate it within their lesson plan?

The moderator of the day will be Joke van der Leeuw-Roord, special advisor and founder of EUROCLIO.
The speakers will include: Dr. Chris van der Heijden (Groene Amsterdammer), Dion van den Berg (Pax for Peace), Dr. Marko Suica (University of Belgrade) and Dr. Snjezana Koren (University of Zagreb).
