Universities and Conflict: The Role of Higher Education in Peacebuilding and Resistance.

Main Article Content

Teresa -


A book written by the academic director of a community engagement team that involves the introduction of experiential and reflective learning and the promotion of community support at the University of Brighton (UK), this book shows how universities can play a particular role in informing policy, influencing publics or developing the attitudes and values of their students (p. 5). Juliet Millican decided to compile the chapters for this book during sabbatical research among accounts drawn from the field and written by academics, managers, and community partners from several regions. After visits between November 2014 and January 2016 to Bradford, Belfast, Palestine, Bosnia, and Burma (and meetings with academics from Congo, Egypt and Rwanda), Dr. Millican surveyed these places and people with some questions about the "university roles".
