IIPE 2024: Nepal

July 21-28, 2024

Dear Zeena,

We invite you to apply to join us at the 2024 International Institute on Peace Education (IIPE)! The IIPE is a sister initiative of the Global Campaign for Peace Education. Please don't miss this opportunity to join our amazing peacelearning community. The deadline to apply is March 15.

IIPE 2024: Nepal will take place near Kathmandu, Nepal from July 21-28 2024. The Institute is being organized by the IIPE Secretariat in partnership with a network of former IIPE participants in Nepal and various local NGOs, including ASER Nepal (Annual Status of Education Report) and Galli Galli.

IIPE 2024: Nepal will convene educators from around the globe for a week-long, residential, learning community experience in peace education. A rich exchange of peacebuilding research, academic theory, best practices, and actions will be shared by participants from around the world through IIPE’s evolving dialogical, cooperative, and intersubjective modes of reflective inquiry and experiential learning.

2024 Theme

The Pedagogy and Peace Politics of Change: Navigating the Tensions Between Tradition and Modernity

Nepal today epitomizes a crossroads of transitions and an exchange of knowledge and culture as it did on the ancient Silk Road, a pathway of trade between East and West. IIPE 2024 aims to be a crossroads of peacelearning for peace educator-activists and scholars where Nepalese participants will exchange perspectives with global participants on shared, diverse challenges and problems. IIPE Nepal invites questions that open new perspectives on global and local issues. All participants will offer their experience to the learning community that will build shared understandings towards adapting for the survival and well-being of peoples and Earth in this time of crises. IIPE in Nepal offers a unique opportunity for incorporating ancient wisdom with present knowledge for peaceful futures: how can these ways of knowing be brought together to better educate and learn for peace?

Nepal: Themes & Issues

In the context of Nepal, we’ll explore political, economic, and ecological challenges that also exist globally. Nepal is diverse in landscape, languages, geographies, and ethnicities; strivings here offer a microcosm that mirrors global contexts. Nepal, a federated constitutional democracy since 2015, faces pressures of militarism, autocracy, displaced peoples, human rights violations, competition for resources, culture including gender, as well as pressures of global great power dynamics that exist in all present-day democracies. These challenges, like those in the global peace community, raise questions of how to navigate the tensions between ancient cultures and spiritual traditions and the present economic and political pressures of the modern globalized world.

Global Commonalities

At IIPE 2024: Nepal, we will delve into the diverse perspectives of Nepalese and global participants on threats and challenges such as the climate catastrophes that are transforming our geographical landscapes as well as the pressures due to political shifts in great powers that transform the contexts of our realities. These shifts seem to render ordinary citizens helpless. Yet, educating for peace aims to empower citizens to open their minds to the potential of cross-contextual thinking together to generate collective understandings and creative alternative paths for actions.


IIPE 2024 will be held at the Tayo Eco Resort. Located 32km from the capital city of Kathmandu, Tayo Eco Resort is perched on top of Shanti Danda or Peace hill in Nagarkot, amidst dense forests, emerald terraced farmlands, quaint villages, with breathtaking views of the Himalayas.

Peacelearning at IIPE 2024: Nepal

IIPE Nepal will feature immersive experiences and excursions to learn first-hand the local manifestations of the tensions between tradition, spirituality and modernity. [More details coming soon!]
