Global Campaign for Peace Education



Peace Education Curricula: Links to download free curricula including:


"Learning to Abolish War, Teaching for a Culture of Peace": a comprehensive 3-book packet including a theoretical overview, sample lessons, a teacher-training outline, and networking resources for peace education. Concepts and teaching methods relating to human rights and humanitarian law, conflict prevention and resolution, disarmament, human security, and a culture of peace are stressed throughout.

"Peace Lessons from Around the World": This collection of sixteen lessons, from Albania, Cambodia, Philippines, Kenya, India, Nepal, US, Catalunya (Spain) and South Africa, is based on the Hague Agenda for Peace and Justice for the 21st Century (UN Ref. A/54/98) They should be adoptable and adaptable to any culture and will serve to stimulate values and skills for a culture of peace. Included are suggested guidelines on how to make a peace lesson.

"Peace and Disarmament Education”: This book represents the work of and the lessons learned from the two year collaboration between the United Nations Department for Disarmament Affairs and the Hague Appeal for Peace. The learning summarized in this publication is an invaluable contribution to the advancement of the study of disarmament as an essential issue for peace education.

Time to Abolish War”: This youth agenda looks at building a culture of peace through “peace campaigns on issues including landmines, small arms, peace education, promoting children’s rights, stopping the use of child soldiers, abolishing nuclear weapons, and building an International Criminal Court.”

Peace Education: A Pathway to a Culture of Peace”: The overall goal of this book is to provide educators with the basic knowledge base as well as the skill- and value-orientations that we associate with educating for a culture of peace. Although this work is primarily directed towards the pre-service and in-service preparation of teachers in the formal school system, it may be used in nonformal education. It can also be a resource for those who want to understand peace issues and some of the ways by which they can help work for change towards a more peaceable society.


Peace Education Policy Documents:Links to the Hague Agenda for Peace and Justice in the 21st Century as well as policy documentation and high-level recommendations supporting peace education from UNESCO in Sri Lanka; Israel/Palestine Center for Research and Information; Balkan Regional Conference on Peace Education and Conflict Resolution in Schools; Report of the Working Committee Meeting on "Peace Education in Africa”; and the Basque Plan of Action for Human Rights and Peace Education.


International Institute on Peace Education



An annual institute to bring peace education practitioners from around the world together. Participants are educators, activists, graduate students, and representatives of agencies and NGOs. According to the website, the three goals are:


-To further develop the substance of peace education through exploration of new and challenging themes to contribute to the on-going development of the field – each year focusing on issues and educational frameworks, particularly relevant to the host institution and region.

-To build strategic international institutional alliances among universities and agencies involved in peace education thereby increasing the benefits of shared expertise on substance and practice as well as advancing educational reform initiatives.

-To encourage regional cooperation toward the maximization of resources, cooperation in pedagogical and substantive developments and increasing regional perspectives on the global issues that comprise the content of peace education.


The institute includes orientation, plenaries, workshops and seminars, excursions and reflection groups.


Community-Based Institutes on Peace Education


According to their website, “CIPEs are sustainable, community-based, non-formal peace education teacher training initiatives designed to address the lack of formal opportunities for the preparation of educators in the methods and practices of peace education. CIPEs are locally developed and taught in the local language to more adequately address local manifestations of violence, local and national educational policies, and prepare educators in culturally and contextually relevant educational practices.”


Resources include:

"Community-based Institute on Peace Education Organizer's Manual: A Peace Education Planning Guide": Designed to assist formal, non-formal and grass-roots educators and educational planners by providing ideas and tools for the development of community-based peace education learning projects that might contribute to the reduction of violence at all levels of the global social order. Can be ordered or downloaded for free.


Reports from CIPEs around the world: From Colombia, India, Mindanao (Philippines), Peru, Tanzania, and the Ukraine. Also the report of the first Mindanao Community-Based Institute on Peace Education.


The website also includes a statement of vision and principles.
