The Georg Eckert Institute. Member of the Leibniz Association (GEI) is
an international center of excellence for textbook and educational media
research with exceptional research infrastructures. The Georg Arnhold
Program promotes research on education for sustainable peace with a
particular focus on educational media and curricula in post-conflict or
transitional societies. The program is named for Georg Arnhold (1859 –

grandson, the American Henry H. Arnhold, instituted the program at the
