Peace and conflict studies (PACS) education has grown significantly in the last 30 years, mainly in Higher Education.

We propose here that…

This article narrates the story of how a peace education program, over the course of a year, shifts from a more traditional form of peace education as conflict resolution skill building to a critical form of peace education.
