This article explores 'peace days' in English schools as a form of peace education.

Clarke-Habibi, Sara – Journal of Peace Education, 2018
What does it mean to educate for peace after witnessing one's community being devastated by war? And what impact, if any, does educating for peace have amidst the complexity of post-war reconstruction? To explore these questions, a phenomenological study was conducted in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2012 with eight ethnically diverse educators who…

Vanner, Catherine; Akseer, Spogmai; Kovinthan, Thursica – Journal of Peace Education, 2017
Post-war education is usually considered a positive contributor to peacebuilding; however, it can also reinforce divisive perspectives. Textbooks and learning materials can be instrumental in maintaining or exacerbating existing inequalities. This paper uses case study literature reviews of Afghanistan, South Sudan and Sri Lanka to explore the…

Szczepanska, Kamila – Journal of Peace Education, 2017
The centrality of atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japanese collective memory has been often perceived by the country's neighbours, i.e. the People's Republic of China and South Korea, as a pillar of the country's (alleged) "victim consciousness" and amnesia in regard to the suffering inflicted on others. For this reason, the…

Stoskopf, Alan; Bermudez, Angela – Journal of Peace Education, 2017
In this paper we examine how the Abolition Movement's approach to non-violent resistance has been silenced in four American history textbooks. Despite extensive research that reveals an extensive network of groups dedicated to the peaceful abolishment of slavery little of this historical record is included in the textbooks. Instead, a skewed…

In the last forty years, peace education has broadened its focus from primarily international peace and the prevention of war to an approach that encompasses social justice, environmental education, critical theory, and multicultural education.

Dutta, Urmitapa; Andzenge, Andrea Kashimana; Walkling, Kayla – Journal of Peace Education, 2016
A critical task for peace pedagogy is to challenge views of peace as primarily responses to declared war. Crisis-based politics tend to focus on exceptional situations and fail to capture the entire spectrum of violence. Premised on the idea that peace cannot be understood in isolation of larger structural problems, this paper proposes the concept…

Rasheed, Rebeen A.; Munoz, Alexander – Journal of Peace Education, 2016
As the Syrian civil war enters its fifth year, with over four million refugees and no solution in the near future, the international community must better consider long-term planning in regards to the plight of refugees and services to support them, not just short-term emergency responses. Critically, higher education is all too often ignored when…

The system of Japan's military sexual slavery had not been written as a part of history until courageous survivors testified and…

Herborn, Peter J.; Hutchinson, Francis P. – Journal of Peace Education, 2014
War memorials and related exhibition spaces are commonplace in Australian cities and towns. As critically reflected upon in this paper, there is much "hidden" or alternative history that tends to get ignored when it comes to official memorials and conventional places of remembrance. The particular focus of our paper is the exploration of…
