This paper looks at the contribution that higher education might make to the development of citizenship and civic responsibility in a society recovering from conflict. Drawing on some preliminary research undertaken within a student community engagement project at the Dzemal Bijedic University in East Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, it raises questions about the role of higher education in post conflict recovery, the kind of citizens and young people needed to build and maintain peace and the ways in which participatory and transformational learning might be integrated into an otherwise more formal HE curriculum.
