The 52th issue of SangSaeng has been published with the theme “Historical Reconciliation and GCED.”  This issue explores various endeavours aimed at attaining historical reconciliation and peace, as well as the important role education plays to achieve this goal. How we teach and learn about our past and present conflicts is critical in shaping our future. It can help enhance global citizenship and lead us to peaceful reconciliation and peacebuilding, or it can intensify the hatred of others and build up more conflicts.
