Resilience, Language, and Social Cohesion

This list of resources on Resilience, Language, and Social Cohesion are part of the larger Learning for Peace project which produced dozens of briefs, reports, case studies, guides, and research products, and compiled many other relevant resources related to the link between education and peacebuilding.

Language policies has been the cause of conflict, exclusion and disintegration in many multilingual societies.

This section provides a summary report of minority language policy dialogue platforms held in Myanmar and Malaysia. It also provides a case study about the extent to which education systems in Kenya strengthen or weaken resilience and youth engagement in Kenya’s arid and semi-arid lands.
