A recent title that comes to mind is "Teaching Peace in a Time of War"

"Teaching Peace in a Time of War introduces us to the students and teachers
at Vasa Pelagic School in Belgrade, Serbia. The students include Nenad,
whose father is institutionalized for killing his mother, and Emil, who is
terrorized for being a Muslim...Despite these challenges, educators Nena and
Irena are won over by Hetty's brand of conflict prevention and resolution,
where the ultimate goal is to empower children to shape their destinies more

Subject: [Videolib] Videos on Ethno-political conflict

I am looking for videos that deal with political or ethnic conflict and how
that conflict was resolved through negotiation or mediation. I have no
specific title(s) in mind here, I am fishing.

The nature of the conflict should be clearly be explained, followed by the
way that both sides were able to negotiate across their differences to a
positive conclusion. If an outside force like the UN helped in this process,
then so much the better. The more current the scenario, the better.

I have spent more time than I can justify on this search, and must now call
upon your impressive collective knowledge.
