Linguapax.
Five papers on the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Linguapax program, established to explore how foreign language education can promote peace and understanding, are included. "UNESCO Linguapax at JALT96" (Kip Cates) describes the Linguapax-related speakers, events, and workshops at the 1996 annual conference of the Japan Association for Language Teaching. "Language Education for World Peace" (Felix Marti) praises the growing culture of peace and examines the role of languages and linguistic policy in promoting peace worldwide. "Linguapax, Language Learning, and Technology" (Denis Cunningham) extends the discussion to the role of various forms of technology in advancing language education for peace. "Modern Language Teaching After the Year 2000" (Reinhold Freudenstein) offers six ideas for changing the place of language instruction within the educational system to make it more effective. "Colloquium: Linguapax, Language Teaching, and Peace Education" reports on a panel discussion (Kip Cates, Felix Marti, Denis Cunningham, Madeleine du Vivier, Albert Raasch, Reinhold Freudenstein).
