Strengthening Peace Building through Science and Technology Education
Massaquoi, Joseph G. M.
Science Education International, v20 n1-2 p60-68 Dec 2009
One of the many causes of conflict is the inequitable distribution of resources which is usually accompanied by widespread poverty. The breakdown in communication, the absence of a culture of peace is also contributing factors to conflicts. This paper has highlighted the causes of conflicts, the requirements for peace, and the strategies for peace building. It shows that there are many peace building actions that require inputs of science and technology. Such inputs would include scientific knowledge, the application of the knowledge and the process used in acquiring scientific knowledge. These three aspects of science and technology can influence the socio-economic development, poverty reduction, communication and dialogues in communities and the mindset that promotes peace.
