Public Discussion in Tbilisi “History Education at a Time of War”

Confronting Memories and Georgian Association of History Educators (GAHE) organised a public event at the European School in Tbilisi. The discussion addressed the following questions:
  1. What is the ethnic aspect of the confrontation between Georgia and Abkhazia, and Georgia and South Ossetia and how can we teach it?
  2. What kind of narratives or sources do we need to put into the history textbooks? What kind of additional resources do we need to overcome misunderstandings between opposing sides?
  3. What is the best way to teach history with conflict resolution in mind?
Dr. Giorgi Kiknadze – Historian and professor at the European University
Dr. Lela Kakashvili – History teacher at Gori Public school #9
Amiran Jamagidze – History educator, trainer, lecturer and history teacher at Tbilisi Classical Gymnasium

Dr. Nana Tsikhistavi – Historian, professor at the New Higher Education Institute (NEWUNI)

It was the first public discussion implemented in the framework of the project “History Education at a Time of War”. Together with partners in Armenia, Georgia and Moldova, we work with history teachers in these countries, bearing in mind history education with the backdrop on recent or ongoing conflicts in the region. The next two public discussions in Chișinău and Yerevan will take place in Autumn 2023.
