2. Recommendation: The project may have inadvertently stumbled upon an educational model that can address cultural, religious and ethnic conflicts that are prevalent in many societies. Initially, the CE model can be shared subregionally through the conduct of a Pacific Islands Citizenship Education Conference on Best Practices and Lessons Learned. Eventually, it can be shared with other regions as a global educational program in collaboration with UNESCO that offers education solutions in specific conflict areas or regions.
