The Role of Music Practices for Peace Education in Conflict (MuPPEC)
This interdisciplinary project including College of Social Science and College of Arts researchers will critically examine the contribution made by music practices in developing peace education and inclusion with individuals affected by violent conflict, beginning with Mexico, Colombia and Brazil. The project will deliver critical ethnographies of NGOs to target a large external GCRF-funding call. It will benefit practitioner, policy and research-leaders in ODA-recipient countries by helping to develop research-informed-practices.
