The European Association of History Education (EUROCLIO), in cooperation with LeidenAsiaCentre and the Institute of History, will host the conference “Teaching for Peace, History in Perspective” at the Leiden University. 

It is part of a three-day conference that explores the role of international cooperation, history education and civil society in establishing sustainable peace in East Asia in dialogue with Europe.

The annual International NGOs Forum on History and Peace, co-organized by the International History NGO for History and Peace, came into being in 2008 and is a unique platform for cooperation among thousands of representatives of civil society, education and research with a focus on strengthening cooperation between China, South Korea and Japan, as well as fostering co-operation across East Asia and beyond.

The focus of July the 7th is “Addressing the History of Colonialism and World War II in Europe and East Asia: Comparing and Contrasting”. LeidenAsiaCentre academic director Remco Breuker will act as the Chair of the Day.
