Scope of Peace Education: Learning Objectives

After this Chapter, participants should be able to meet the following objectives: 

  • Understand the wide range of fields that peace education encompasses
  • Understand the knowledge, values and skills that each field seeks to promote
  • Understand concrete classroom applications for each field


Guiding Questions

As you read this unit, consider the following questions: 

  • How can I integrate these themes into the curriculum that I currently use? How can I find "spaces" for peace education? 


Chapter Introduction 

As exemplified in the Definitions section, the field of peace education is hard to define and encompasses many other fields. In this Chapter, we will explore some of the main fields that fall under the umbrella of peace education. Each section will explore the key theories, knowledge, values, and skills needed for the promotion of that field, as well as one example of a classroom lesson. The lessons are here to serve as a practical guide as to how to implement the peace education principles, as well as to help get your creative ideas flowing about how you can design your own lessons for your context. As peace education is by nature highly contextual and should deal with the reality of your students, it is important that you develop and adapt lessons as such. Units 2 and 3 will go into greater depth with the practical applications of peace education.
