Learn about the Summer School

Divisions, Reconciliation and Unity

The summer school “Divisions, Reconciliation and Unity” is a joint project organized by the University of Ottawa, the University of Rostock, and Ehwa University. Each year, 30 students from the three partners convene for a 2-weeks intensive summer program to learn about divisions, reconciliation and unity in Germany, Korea and Canada. The class in Ottawa will explore the complex historical and present-day divisions and experiences of indigenous people in Canada, and discuss ways how indigenous and non-indigenous people can live in harmony with each other. The course will also include some guest lectures from German professors from the University of Rostock and Korean professors from Ewha University, who will compare the Canadian experience of divisions, reconciliation and unity with their country’s respective experiences. These guest lectures will show some avenues of learning between the three countries.

Indigenous Affirmation

We pay respect to the Algonquin people, who are the traditional guardians of this land. We acknowledge their longstanding relationship with this territory, which remains unceded. 

We pay respect to all Indigenous people in this region, from all nations across Canada, who call Ottawa home. 

We acknowledge the traditional knowledge keepers, both young and old. And we honour their courageous leaders: past, present, and future.
