 “Negotiating Language Policy, security and Rights in the Classroom
During and After Violent Conflict”

A presentation by
Zeena Zakharia
Gebran G. Tueni Fellow
Carr Center for Human Rights Policy

Friday, September 24, 2010
1:30 - 2:30 pm
HGSE Gutman Conference Center,
(basement, GSE's Gutman Library)

Zeena Zakharia, Gebran G. Tueni Fellow at the Carr Center for Human
Rights Policy-HKS, will be giving a presentation on language policy
from a human rights perspective, especially with regards to
conflict/post-conflict settings. Her presentation will explore the
work of teachers as key policy actors during periods of violent
political conflict and post-war reconstruction. Specifically, it
considers how language teachers at one Shi'i school in Lebanon
negotiated between the demands and pressures of external standards in
education and students' academic and social needs during a period of
acute sociopolitical crisis.
