War and Peace in Iraqi Kurdistan’s History Curricula

Marwan Darweish, Maamoon Abdulsamad Alsayid Mohammed

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Since its inception in 2003, Kurdistan’s Regional Government (KRG) has implemented a wide range of reforms in Iraqi Kurdistan’s (IK) education system. The history education curricula (HEC) students encounter glorify war, exclude different narratives or interpretations, and fail to foster critical debate or enquiry. In their explicit content, as well as in their implications, processes and delivery, IK’s HEC encourage violence, foster divisions between Muslims and non-Muslims, and serve to establish the dominance of the most powerful group in society.
