Peace Education: An Islamic Approach
Koylu, Mustafa
Journal of Peace Education, v1 n1 p59-76 Mar 2004
One of the most important, crucial and urgent issues which concerns not just one nation or one religion or ideology, but is a concern of all peoples of the world, is education for peace and justice. The destiny and future of humanity depends on these two concepts: peace and justice. However, it seems that many countries today, including Muslim countries, do not give the necessary importance to this subject. This article deals with education for peace and justice in Islam. It includes the definition and historical development of peace education. It analyses the concepts of war and peace that are the basic contents of peace education in light of contemporary world conditions. Finally it discusses the possibility of peace education in the world in general and in Muslim countries in particular, and the contribution of Islam to this issue.
