Abstract
Can we learn peace at school? An evaluation of the Human rights and Citizenship Education (EDHC) course in post-conflict Ivory Coast - After the post-electoral crisis, the government of Ivory Coast introduced a course entitled Human rights and citizenship education (EDHC) to the lower secondary school curriculum to facilitate a societal transition to a culture of peace. This article, which examines the perceptions of course participants and their teachers, is based on a large-scale survey (n = 984), 25 focus groups and course observations carried out in Abidjan. An analysis of the course's strengths and weaknesses from the point of view of the key players in the education system enables the authors to evaluate its effectiveness. They find that, despite the enthusiasm around this course, its lack of depth is preventing a change of mentality. In addition, the message of peace that the course strives to convey is compromised by school violence.
