The declaration refers to the need of a humanistic education in general and does not make special reference to history teaching; in that sense describes the framework of an inclusive school education which (point 7) "is crucial in promoting democracy and human rights and enhancing global citizenship, tolerance and civic engagement as well as sustainable development. Education should facilitate intercultural dialogue and foster respect for cultural, religious and linguistic diversity, which are vital for achieving social cohesion and justice"" (p. 26) and (point 9) "Unlocking education’s power for all will require creating more opportunity everywhere, but especially in countries and regions in conflict. Many of the largest education gaps are found in conflict and emergency situations. It is, therefore, critical to develop education systems that are more resilient and responsive in the face of conflict, social unrest and natural hazards – and to ensure that education is maintained during emergency, conflict and post-conflict situations. Better education is also central to preventing and mitigating conflicts and crises and to promoting peace"". (p. 27)"
