This chapter discusses how public education can change attitudes, beliefs, and behavior. Public education can include lectures and workshops, literature, various media, and the Internet. It also has to consider local conditions. In Rwanda, an educational radio drama, developed based on the Staub–Pearlman approach, made it more likely that people use their judgment about the meaning of events and act on their beliefs. Grassroots projects, building on the radio drama, and other radio programs, also had positive effects.

Keywords:   education programs, group violence, behavior, prevention, Rwanda, Congo, Internet, radio
