In this activity, we will explore how the concept of Shared Humanity might be applied to avoid armed conflict.

  1. View the short film My Enemy, My Brother. A story of two opposing soldiers who fought in the Iran-Iraq War (1980 – 1988).
  2. Create a new thread and respond to the following prompt: Every year, the United Institute for Peace hosts a National Peace Writing contest. The Institute was created to “mitigate international conflict through nonviolent means.” Imagine you are planning to make a submission. In about two paragraphs (1) give a definition of “shared humanity,” (2) give an example of how shared humanity played a role in the film My Enemy, My Brother, and (3) describe how international conflicts might be avoided through the recognition of shared humanity.
