The project group "Preparedness for Peace," working at the Department of Educational and Psychological Research, Malmo School of Education in Sweden, explores ways of helping children and young people to deal constructively with questions of peace and war. As part of its work, the project group collects viewpoints on the role of schools in pursuit of "peace preparedness." A number of experts with special interests and competences in areas related to peace education have been interviewed. This report presents such conversations with 10 experts: James Calleja (from Malta), James Collinge (New Zealand); Henk B. Gerritsma and Daan Verbaan (The Netherlands), Petra Hesse (the United States), David Hicks (England), Mitsuo Okamoto (Japan), Paul Rogers (Northern Ireland) and Maura Ward (Ireland), and Bogdan Rowinski (Poland).
