The Indian subcontinent was divided into two countries in 1947, and later Pakistan was further divided into two countries. Now this region is made up of three countries: Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan. A long history has been shared among these countries, but each country has constructed its own history, and academics have called it politics of history-making and history-writing. These countries also inherited the education system (structures, curricula, and policies) created by the British constructing a certain identity and worldview. This session explores how peace education and attitudes towards peace education are shaped by the politics of education in the Indian Subcontinent.
