Organizing for Peace and World Order Studies: A Guide of Strategies and Methods. Project for Global Education.
Institute for World Order, New York, NY.
Methods are offered for developing college-level peace and world order programs designed to stimulate critical problem identification and creative problem solving and to equip students for the political complexities of the struggle for peace. The manual is organized into four sections. Section 1 contains four essays by students in peace and world order studies at Princeton, Columbia, Rutgers, and the American University. The essays emphasize ways in which the programs have changed student perceptions. Section 2 contains five articles on organizing an interdisciplinary peace studies curriculum, creating a campus-wide program, finding sponsors for activities, presenting proposals, and working with other professors. Section 3 describes model programs at the School for International Training, Georgetown University, University of Iowa, and Colgate University. Topics include experiential world order studies, the interdisciplinary major in peace studies, certificates in global studies, and brief course descriptions. Section 4 describes the organization of peace and world order studies at the Catholic University of America. A list of similar programs in colleges and universities in the United States is provided.
