3. LOOKING FOR PUBLICATIONS RELATED TO PEACE EDUCATION PROGRAMMES
Hello, My name is Jennifer Lauren. I am a graduate student of International Affairs & Civil Society who has worked on girls’ health and education programming in Africa. I am currently interning with UNESCO and am compiling a report on peace education.  I highly value the input of those on this listserv and would appreciate any feedback you may have in regards to resources, academic papers, evaluations – in particular on impact or outcome evaluations, lessons learned or any material relevant to peace education programmes.

4. SEEKING MATERIALS RELATED TO HRE IN HIGHER EDUCATION
Dear colleagues, Here in Brazil we are trying to put into practice the PNEDH — the National Plan for Human Rights Education through the CEEDHRS (Comitê Estadual de Educação em DH do Rio grande do Sul). We are organizing a meeting on state education in human rights in higher education. At this meeting we will talk about what different universities are doing. I would like to invite list members to send materials, etc.
Loving embrace from us in Brazil for the great human rights family, Carla Corrêa, E-mail.
