This document contains an interview with David Hicks, an educator in England active in promoting the practice of peace education. (The interviewer was Ake Bjerstedt.) Peace education is described as a process that seeks to promote students' autonomy; foster debate and dialogue between students and teachers; and help young people to understand some of the origins of conflicts and various concepts of peace. The current state of peace education in schools in England, existing peace education projects, what teachers can do to teach peace, how teachers should be trained, and perceptions and misperceptions of peace education and related terms are among the topics discussed.
