Abiti Nelson Adebo, Lizzi O. Milligan, Nono Francis, Kate Moles

Research output: Chapter or section in a book/report/conference proceedingChapter or section


This chapter explores a potential role for heritage as a developmental resource within mobile education settings with specific reference to peacebuilding. While there has been a big increase in the attention paid to peace education within education studies, heritage as a site, means, or process of informal education is often neglected within these considerations. In this way, just as formal education settings have been neglected as sites of memory, heritage has similarly been sidelined in discussions of teaching and learning about the violent past, such as in history and peace education. The chapter first discusses the role of museums in peacebuilding, it then proposes an alternative model of museum learning through travelling exhibitions focused on a case study from Northern Uganda.
