Education for Peace: A Conference Report from Kyoto. Peace Education Reports No. 6.
Bjerstedt, Ake, Ed.
Conference sessions of the Peace Education Commission (PEC), a transnational network of people interested in peace education and research related to peace education, are reported in this document. Following an introductory overview of the conference as a whole, the report is divided into four parts. The first part contains three area studies; that is, papers reporting on developments related to peace education in special geographical areas. The second part includes three comparative studies, in which comparisons are made between various countries or between different time periods. The third part contains seven papers covering such topics as linguistic rights, lifelong education, nonviolence, and the World Bank. While the first three parts of the report contain full papers (or substantial extracts of papers), the fourth part presents 19 papers in brief abstract or summary form. The titles and authors of the papers included in the first three parts of the report are: Peace Education in Japanese Universities (H. Fujita; T. Ito); Education for Social Transformation in South Korea (J. Synott); Education for Global Survival: Reflections Based on Some Swedish Experiences and Examples (B.
