Controversies Connected with Peace Education. What Do They Mean and How Should They Be Dealt With? Peace Education Reports No. 15.
Fifty experts with a special interest in peace education (and representing 22 different countries) were confronted with the following set of questions (as part of individual interviews): "In many countries, questions related to disarmament and peace are highly controversial. Would you anticipate any difficulties, for example with parents or other members of the community, when introducing peace education in the schools? If so, what kind of difficulties? Do you see any way out of such problems?" This report documents and discusses the answers of the experts to these questions. Most of the respondents agreed that peace education often was seen as a controversial topic in their country, and a large number of illustrations and possible counter-measures were mentioned.
