Abstract

What is the impact of youth interfaith dialogues on students and school communities? What role does the inclusion of opportunities for youth leadership in the “program design play? We implemented a series of such dialogues, which then led to youth‐designed and implemented peace projects at their school sites. Using qualitative and quantitative assessments, this article adds to the literature on critical peace education, offering useful insights for both practitioners and researchers.
