The workshop titled "History and history teaching in SEE," held in Graz under the auspices of the Graz Process, Task Force South East Europe, and organized by Kulturkontakt, the Council of Europe, and the Centre for the Study of Balkan Societies and Cultures (CSBSC) at the University of Graz, aimed to assess ongoing initiatives related to history and history teaching in South East Europe. It sought to build a strategic framework for action in education that promotes a pluralist and tolerant approach, critical thinking, and a comprehensive understanding of the region's history. The workshop recognized the potential for long-term projects to foster mutual understanding and civic education in the region but acknowledged the need for flexibility and adaptation to diverse educational systems, resource constraints, and varying priorities among countries and sectors within the region. The primary goal was to encourage collaborative efforts to improve history education and promote peace and stability in South East Europe.
