The role of faith-based schools in the promotion of peace and justice in ethno-religious conflict-driven Taraba state, Nigeria
This study sought to understand how faith-based schools teach and practice the principles of peace and justice in Taraba state, Nigeria, given the conflict-driven in the community. Three principals and three teachers in three different local high schools (Catholic, Protestant, and Muslim) were interviewed individually, as were the Commissioner for Education in Taraba, a religious leader from all three religions, and a tribal leader. The interviews sought their perceptions of (a) the causes for ethnic and religious conflict; (b) the steps the government is taking to resolve the tension; and (c) what progress has been made towards sustainable peace and justice.
