Sudanese Images of the Other: Education and Conflict in Sudan
Breidlid, Anders
Comparative Education Review, v54 n4 p555-575 Nov 2010
Education can contribute to peace and reconciliation as well as to conflict and strife. The complex, often contradictory role of education in conflict is explored in this article in relation to Sudan. The focus of the article is the North-South conflict, bearing in mind that other, "minor" wars and military clashes in both the North and South have "each fed into and intensified the fighting of the overall North-South war." The author examines the pre- and postconflict political discourses and the educational discourses employed in relation to the ideological, religious, and military struggle between the Sudan People's Liberation Movement/Army (SPLM/A) in the South and the Khartoum government in the North. In addition, the author will discuss how the political and educational discourses contributed to the reconstruction of the country and to the simultaneous sustaining and undermining of the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA). (Contains 2 tables and 19 footnotes.)
