Delvou, Marjolein
Journal of Peace Education, v8 n3 p353-355 2011
On March 18th 2011 an independent jury of experts convened in Antwerp, Belgium, to select the laureate of the first Evens Prize for Peace Education from a shortlist of eleven organizations from all over Europe. After a long day of intense discussions, the jury agreed unanimously to award the prize to the "Escola de Cultura de Pau" (Barcelona, Spain) for its teacher trainings in conflict management organized in the framework of its peace education program. The award ceremony was held place in Barcelona on 20 September 2011. The "Escola de Cultura de Pau" was established in 1999 with the aim of organizing academic activities, research and interventions related to a culture of peace, analysis, prevention and transformation of conflicts, peace education, disarmament and the promotion of human rights. Born as a UNESCO Chair on Peace and Human Rights, it has developed into a Peace Research Centre attached to the Autonomous University of Barcelona. Its objectives are: (1) to promote understanding and the implementation of a culture of peace; (2) to investigate and intervene in areas related to conflicts, peace processes, post-war rehabilitation, human rights, track II diplomacy, arts and peace education; and (3) to give training to people who wish to disseminate the message and practice of a culture of peace. The main work of its Peace Education Program consists of setting up educational activities and producing teaching and outreach material. All of this work is aimed at promoting the strategies and skills needed for the nonviolent resolution of conflicts and peace-building, and the spread of tools and activities for peace education.
