Organizational structures – even the education system – can powerfully blind us to injustice and inequality. Dr. Cranston studies perceptions of peace among diaspora teachers in refugee camps, and uncovers ways to lift blinders to injustice.
His work on teachers' conceptions of peace in post-genocide Rwanda earned him the 2015 American Educational Research Association’s award for peace education. Along with colleague Dr. Melanie Janzen, he established the first collaborative summer institute on human rights education with the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
