Dr Scherto Gill is Senior Research Fellow at the GHFP Research Institute. She is also a Visiting Fellow and an Associate Lecturer at the University of Sussex’s School of Education, and a Director of a UNESCO Research Project on ‘Healing the Wounds of Slavery’. Scherto’s research interests centre on understanding peace, human well-being and flourishing as holistic and dynamic processes. The key concepts she is developing include human-centred education, positive peace, deep dialogue, ecology of well-being, and global governance.
