Towards a Rationale and a Didactics of Peace Education: Progress Notes (1990) on the Project "Preparedness for Peace" in Sweden. Peace Education Miniprints No. 6.
The aims and tasks of a set of research and development studies carried out at the Malmo School of Education at Lund University in Sweden, under the umbrella term "Preparedness for peace," are outlined. The general aim of the studies was to increase knowledge of possible ways of helping children and young people at school to deal constructively with questions of war and peace. The work involved a variety of tasks, for example: (1) an inventory and analysis of experiences of peace education in different countries; (2) studies of conceptions (peace, war, enemy images) among children and young people; (3) a collection and analysis of viewpoints on the role of schools in pursuit of "preparedness for peace"; (4) documentation and experiments focusing on practical ways in which schools can organize peace-oriented activities; and (5) publication of brief information pamphlets from the project work that might be used to stimulate discussion and to generate ideas among teachers and teacher trainees. The document has a 124-item reference list of pamphlets and reports. (DB)
