Abstract title

Non-Western epistemology and Decolonizing Peace Education in World Anthropology : The example of two Diaspora Communities

Abstract text

In this paper, I like to draw on 2 examples: One in Shingal, Northern Iraq, the other in Karen state, in Eastern Myanmar, to explore the possibility of world anthropology that is sensitive to and involves local communities in a Non-Western context throughout the research. I want to express the case-study of two communities- Yazid and Karen- who had to flee from violence and political persecution and who organized to help their communities from the Diaspora. World anthropology would also have an applied face: How would world anthropology be able to make peopleĀ“s voices heard, and how could peace education be decolonized. How can the intervention be designed in a way to support refugee communities in trauma therapy, resilience, reconstruction, and in future-crafting?
