Literacy for Peace and Human Rights.
ASPBAE Courier, n49-50 Dec 1990
This publication contains 11 papers, all of which reflect the emphasis on literacy that continues to dominate adult education at the end of International Literacy Year. The papers include four presentations from conferences related to literacy held in 1990, one on literacy and peace held in Indonesia and one on literacy in China held in Macao. The 11 papers are: "Literacy and Peace Education: A Maori Viewpoint" (Te Ripowai Pauline Higgins); "The Consumer Movement's Efforts in Peace Building" (Joe Selvaretnam); "Fijian Literacy: Visions for a Literate Community" (Joseph Veramu); "Past, Present, and Future of Literacy Education in Korea" (Soon Chul Ko); "Education Is the Answer" (Catherine Tseng); "Why Adult Literacy?" (Inayatullah); "Literacy and Literacy Activities in Japan" (Ken Motoki, Mimoru Mori); "Strategies for Literacy and Functional Literacy" (W. M. K. Wijetunga); "Literacy and Peace Education" (A. T. Ariyaratne); "Weaving New Life" (Thailand Foundation for Women); and "The Intercommunity Roles of Adult Educators and Extension Workers" (James Draper). An annotated list of eight resources and a review of a book by Edwin Townsend-Coles on non-formal education in Botswana conclude this journal. (NLA)
