International understanding and peace through school education is a basic aim of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Associated Schools Project. The feature articles in this bulletin issue discuss declarations and statements relevant to the promotion of peace and projects for international education. The Seville Statement proposes a clarification of major scientific misconceptions to provide a solid base for education towards international understanding. The Yamoussokro Declaration defines the positive content of peace, identifies promising fields for peace, and outlines a program for peace. The Montevideo Declaration reaffirms the importance of democracy and recommends states and relevant organizations commit to promoting democracy. The Paris Statement discusses international assistance in the fields of education and training in non-racial, democratic, post-apartheid South Africa. The four other articles discuss international education projects on the promotion of peace, literacy, and the environment. The special events section focuses on events in Belarus, Chad, Germany, Greece, Togo, and Venezuela and issues surrounding international education at school. The section on new initiative provides an overview on the national coordinator of the Associated Schools Project, on World AIDS Day, and text to illustrate the absurdity of some conflicts. Twenty-seven countries report activities in associated schools. Descriptions of 12 publications related to international education follow the report. (CK)
