Development Education and Peace Education: From Conflict to Co-Operation. UNICEF Development Education Paper No. 22.
Parallels between three main approaches to development education and peace education are pointed out in this discussion. Specifically examined are informational, community action, and "qualitative" approaches to development education and correspondences in the growth of peace education. The document also describes organizational forms of development education and peace education as well as activities undertaken within institutions of formal education at primary, secondary, and higher education levels. Topics discussed include the role of professional associations, both national and international, and the separation of issues in the United Nations system. It is concluded that, whereas both educational concerns have common goals, hopes, and methods, development and peace education are separate activities competing for time, attention, and resources. Their integration is viewed as desirable and possible. (RH)
