Emotion and Traumatic Conflict

Drawing into the discussion on the politicization of emotions from previous chapters, this chapter discusses some of the processes and strategies by which educational policies and pedagogical practices “emotionalize” the representation of refugees. This discussion has two main objectives: first, it aims to refine our understanding of how emotions affect the ways in which educational policies and practices reproduce self–other dichotomies through certain representations such as that of the refugee experience; it is argued that these dichotomies are relevant to emotional reactions against peace education initiatives. Second, this chapter examines alternative possibilities of promoting peaceful coexistence, taking into consideration the affective (re)production of refugee representations without undermining the sensitivity of the refugee experience.
