The Pedagogy of Peace as a Central Element in Peace Studies: A Critical Review and an Outlook on the Future. Peace Education Miniprints No. 63.
This document discusses peace education not as a subject but as part of the teaching of various academic subjects depending on the extent to which they lend themselves to this. The intention is to produce educational situations where young people can develop skills in the art of peace and a peaceful approach to conflict resolution. The pedagogy of peace is understood here as the sum of scholarly and scientific thinking on the nature of peace education and the way it should be organized. The pedagogy of peace is an interdisciplinary branch of science using a broad range of methods, including observation, description, and analysis of peace-educational processes and interrogation of participants with regard to their motives. There is a strong need for intensified peace-pedagogical research efforts and for documentation and coordination of work in this field. This report reflects an approach in three stages: (1) a discussion of the structure of peace education; (2) an interpretation of the pedagogy of peace in its relationship to peace education (in cooperation with peace studies); and (3) prospects for peace education in developing nations.
