Included in an interview with 50 experts who have a special interest in peace education and represent 22 countries, this report documents and discusses answers to the question: "What do you think of first when you hear the words 'peace education'?" Part 1 of the report presents a summary of some of the major aspects of the answers related to the meaning of the term peace education. Part 2 gives a more detailed documentation of the interview answers regarding the question. The reactions vary and testify to the fact that peace education is a changeable field in an early stage of development. The responses show a strong tendency to take up a discussion of possible sub-categories within the field using more specific labels. (CK)
