Militarization, Security, and Peace Education: A Guide for Concerned Citizens.
This guide provides a general introduction to the field of peace education, especially the problems of peace and security. Two purposes are to provide a deeper knowledge of the issues and to provide materials, documentation, and information about additional resources and organizations to aid in implementing a peace education program in the community. The guide is organized into an introduction, four study sessions, and one action-planning session. The introduction includes guidelines for organizing and conducting a study/action group. Information provided for each of the four study sessions includes a description of objectives and content to be covered in the session, a brief background reading and dilemmas, recommended readings, and questions to stimulate review, discussion, and action. Topics of the sessions are: Human Security: The Basis of a Peace System; National Security: The Dilemmas of the War System; Peace Education; Tools for Global Community Buildup; and The Goals of Peace Education: Learning Objectives. After reading about and discussing these various topics, citizens in the final session of the program are expected to develop action responses to deal with the conditions discovered. Actions particularly necessary are those which will educate our society in ways of assuring community, national, and global security. (RM)
