History for Peace is a project of PeaceWorks—An initiative of The Seagull Foundation for the Arts
A network of educators and members of civil society in the subcontinent, the History for Peace project serves as a platform for discussion, debate and the exchange of ideas pertaining to teaching and learning of history for peace and understanding.
