The Use of Stories as a Tool for Intervention and Research in the Arena of Peace Education in Conflict Areas: The Israeli-Palestinian Story
Hirsch, Tal Litvak
Journal of Peace Education, v3 n2 p251-271 Sep 2006
The aim of this paper, in the area of peace education, is to demonstrate the feasibility of using stories as part of educational programmes and research. This paper has two sections. In the first, a brief overview of peace education theory and practice in the Israeli context will be presented. The concept of stories and the possibility of using stories in educational programmes and research in peace education will also be discussed. In the second section, two psychological educational projects that use stories in the area of peace education will be demonstrated and the similarities and differences between the two projects will be noted. In conclusion, guidelines will be presented which can be applied in peace education programmes, not only in Israel but in other regions of conflict throughout the world. (Contains 7 notes.)
