Join DME for Peace on Thursday, February 25th, at 10.00am EDT, as Dr. Terence Bevington, Director of Conexus Conflict Consultancy and The Restorative Lab, joins the M&E Thursday Talks to lead a discussion on “Measuring Everyday Peace in Schools: Methodology & Findings.”
Peace evaluation faces two perennial challenges: first, how to make peace measurable, and secondly, how to measure peace using methods that are in-alignment with peace principles. The Everyday Peace in Schools methodology seeks to address both these challenges.
In our discussion, Dr. Terence Bevington will share the process and findings from his recently completed doctoral research study, gathered from implementing the Everyday Peace in Schools methodology with students and staff in four English secondary schools. Terence will walk through the methodology, giving participants the experience of this disarmingly simple evaluation process. He will also unravel the conceptions of peace that emerged from this study – Personal Peace, Relational Peace, and Institutional Peace.
Whether you are a peace practitioner, educator, researcher, or evaluator, you are sure to find value in learning about this innovative methodology, the locally derived conceptions of peace that it is able to capture, and how it might benefit your own work.
