Developing Preparedness for Peace: Objectives, Methods, Difficulties and Possibilities in Peace-Related Education. Peace Education Reports.
Educators at the Malmo School of Education (Sweden) have carried out a series of studies within the area of school and peace. As an informal umbrella heading for the project group conducting such studies the term "Preparedness for Peace" has been used. The overriding aim of the group's work has been to increase knowledge (in a broad sense) about hindrances and possibilities in the school's work with global survival issues. This overview report collects notes about the work of the project group and the process they have been involved in. The report also presents some of the group's views on possible and fruitful ways of dealing with conflict and peace education that have resulted from the group's work (the product). It is divided into nine sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "What Is Preparedness for Peace? A Discussion about the Ambitions and Specific Objectives of Peace Education"; (3) "What Can We Do in School to Promote a Preparedness for Peace?"; (4) "Some "Difficulties" with Peace Education"; (5) "Peace Education and Teacher Training"; (6) "Developing Students' Materials and Teachers' Manuals"; (7) "Continued Work: Need for Flexible Fact-Finding"; (8) "Issues for Thought and Dialogue"; and (9) "Postscriptum." Includes six text illustrations. Lists 35 full-text quoted interviews and 48 other references. (BT)
