Since November 2017, CELL has been engaged in a partnership with The Georg Eckert Institute (GEI) for International Textbook Research, based in Braunschweig, Germany. GEI is a member of the Leibniz Association, a prestigious network of non-university research institutions. CELL and GEI will collaborate on textbook and educational projects, research, and events, in the domain of divisive stereotypes and discrimination in textbooks and other educational media.
Further, CELL and GEI will combine their expertise to identify divisive stereotypes in textbooks and examine their impact on conflict and violence. Through this work, we will engage policy-makers in reducing divisive stereotypes in textbooks and in working towards an international agreement in this field.
