Abstract

Peace education is a diverse, complicated, and controversial area of educational
practice. It has international connotations and links with conflict resolution
and development, and is gaining more precedence in the debates of
international organizations such as UNESCO, and international nongovernmental
organizations such as Oxfam and Action Aid. Approaches toward
peace education remain disjointed and inconsistent, however. Few deny
that the world in which we live is becoming evermore interdependent. Our
multicultural societies and increased international mobility, together with
international competition for resources and multilateral approaches to
conflict and development, mean that peace can no longer be considered in
terms of discrete national initiatives. If we hope to create a viable culture
of peace that can contribute to solving the problems that we will face in
common during this century, then this must be done globally.
