Drawing on ideas, perspectives, and experiences from diverse contexts, this course seeks to provide peace education practitioners with a holistic and critical understanding of the concepts and approaches used in peace education. Essentially, the course will explore approaches towards the development of a culture of peace as embodied in the UNESCO Programme of Peace which encompasses the specific themes for the formation of the values of peace, conflict resolution, and respect for human rights. The course will also assist the participants in honing their competencies on how to develop and implement peace-oriented programs in their respective organizations reflective of the peace education framework through the experiences and lessons from different contexts. The course will help the participants become more intentional in integrating a peace education paradigm in their current peacebuilding and conflict transformation efforts.
