Description In the framework of the UN Alliance of Civilizations and its newly adopted regional strategy for the South-Eastern Europe, the North-South Centre organised, together with the History Education Division of the Council of Europe and EUROCLIO, a regional seminar entitled ““Reform of History Teaching Methods and Pedagogy in History Teaching in South Eastern Europe”. This meeting brought together about 40 representatives of Ministries of Education and Foreign Affairs, educations agencies, history teachers and national history teachers associations and international education experts from Europe and Africa. The objective of the meeting was to take stock of the reforms in progress implemented by the governments in the SEE region; to provide information on the activities and projects implemented by the Council of Europe and other international organisations, international and national nongovernmental organisations; to identify the main trends of and the lessons learned from these reforms and activities; to identify priority issues on which concrete and pragmatic exchange of good practices, reflection and co-operation could be developed in the SEE region. The outcomes and potential collaborations in the SEE region will lay the basis for the creation of a global and inter-regional network for history teaching.
