"Peace education alone will not achieve the changes necessary for peace: it prepares learners to achieve change."
*This is a revised, shortened version of a chapter published in the Handbook of Peace and Conflict Studies, edited by Charles Webel and Johan Galtung. Routledge, Taylor and Francis Group, London and New York, 2007.
Abstract: This article discusses peace education in terms of its content and communication form in relation to its context. Content and form involve major choices which are decisive in defining the substance of any education practice, including education for peace, and the implicit or explicit choices made are related to the differing conceptions of peace education.
