Coexistence Education
Coexistence Audit (State and Regional)


By Mari Fitzduff, Northern Ireland

1) Is there a Government department dedicated to developing, promoting, and resourcing co-existence work with all sections of society?

2) Do your political parties have policies that validate, respect and endorse co-existence policies and programs?

3) Does your legislation ensure safety for diversity in religious, cultural and political perspectives, and the promotion of co-existence between these perspectives?

4) Do all levels of your educational system include programs for co-existence at curriculum level, and structures for training and resourcing such work?

5) Is co-existence work recognized as part of the responsibility of all public and statutory bodies through their policies and programs?

6) Do both national and local systems of democracy include representation which accords with the diversity of the region, and which protect co-existence work?

7) Do your policing and other security institutions exemplify diversity and include training for co-existence work?

8) Does your media reflect the reality of diversity and co-existence in your state or region?

9) Do you have public, business, trade union and NGO forums to discuss issues of co- existence problems and responses?

10) Do you regularly carry out a co-existence audit in your region which assesses and address the progress of co-existence policies and programs?
