In Intercultural Dialogue and Culture of Peace, including History and Memory, UNESCO East Africa supports and promotes Pedagogical Use of the General Use of the General History of Africa; it works with Kenya (KICD/Ministry of Education) to incorporate UNESCO pedagogical materials (text books and teachers guide, etc.) into new History and Social Science curriculum.

The strand of work promotes interregional/intra-regional collaboration: as examples, it has connected with National Liberation History Project in Southern Africa region, with UNESCO-Harare; it has explored south-south collaboration with Central America in light of October 2017 Combined Decision by the Council of Ministers of Education and Culture of Central America adopted in Panama, providing for the introduction of UNESCO curriculum, From Oblivion to Memory, in Central America schools, and it has supported for reparations movement for people of Africa descent, etc.

Moreover, through this strand of work, new knowledge on migration trends and inclusion in sub-Saharan Africa will be created, as well as rights of migrants in both sending and receiving countries will be promoted. This will create interregional collaboration between, and among researchers, international organizations and local and central governments.

Inclusion and Human Rights will develop and further articulate Africa’s contribution to the ongoing discussion on, and implementation of “UNESCO Cities for 2030” and related activities in follow-up to Habitat III.
