Let’s Talk about Education


The Integrated Education Fund, along with Féile an Phobail is organising an event on Tuesday 7 August at 13.00 in St Mary’s University College which will explore the role that education can play in the process of building peace. Combining a global perspective, as well as a rights-based approach, our contributors will discuss the challenges facing education in a divided society.
