Conflict is an issue which we cannot seem to escape, whether it be a personal disagreement or turning on the news to hear about wars that are taking place in the world. Peace and stability are central to sustainable development. Whilst some regions enjoy sustained levels of peace, others fall into seemingly endless cycles of conflict and violence. This is by no means inevitable and must be addressed.

Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions – Educational resource for teachers and facilitators contains activities, statistics and information to explore conflict – it’s causes and consequences and impact on our world. The resource activities give an opportunity to consider how conflict impacts on the lives of people and the ways in which is causes pain and suffering.

The booklet includes statistics, three activities complete with resources ready to photocopy and key terminology.

Key learning outcomes:

  • Know some of the causes of conflict
  • Understand the human impact of conflict
  • Be able to express why working for peace is working towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
