Organized By : Protection Approaches

“Democratic Education Needs Imagination” (DENI) is a global initiative led by the Auschwitz Institute for the Prevention of Genocide and Mass Atrocities (AIPG) and Protection Approaches (PA) that seeks to (re)imagine how school-based practices and policies can contribute to more respectful, inclusive, and resilient societies.

The launch event of the DENI initiative will feature discussion between some of the global education leaders who were part of the initiative, and who so richly shaped this report, including Olga Lúcia Zárate Mantilla (Ministry of Education, Colombia), Tuija Kasa (University of Helsinki, Finland), Vachararutai (Jan) Boontinand (Mahidol University, Thailand) and Fernande Raine (Got History, USA).

Join the Stimson Center for a panel discussion on the fundamental and far-reaching challenges the Ukraine crisis presents for the UN and what that might portend for global norms and order.

The event will take place online on Apr 26, 2022 at 09:30 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada) / 3:30PM CEST (Geneva).
