Peace, Creative Coexistence and Human Rights Education

The DePaul University Institute for Daisaku Ikeda Studies in Education is pleased to welcome Monisha Bajaj to give the 2023 Ikeda Lecture, “Peace, Creative Coexistence, and Human Rights Education.” Professor of International and Multicultural Education at the University of San Francisco, Dr. Bajaj is an internationally renowned author and educator. Her scholarship on peace, human rights, migration, racial justice, and education has been recognized with multiple prestigious awards, including the Ella Baker/Septima Clark Human Rights Award from the American Educational Research Association (AERA).

In this lecture commemorating Ikeda’s 40 years of annual peace proposals, Dr. Bajaj brings her influential work and perspectives into dialogue with Ikeda’s, engaging especially with his 2013 proposal on the transformative power of education to bolster human dignity, agency, and the wisdom of courageous empathy to build a global society of peace, creative coexistence, and human rights.
