Education for Peace

Education for Peace


(p.416) 20 Education for Peace
Promoting Peace Through International Law

Maria D. Sommardahl

Oxford University Press

This chapter advocates education for peace, characterized by the UN Secretary-General as ‘the road to peace’. The chapter builds on and expands the idea that education concerning the components of peace, which are discussed in the previous chapters, constitutes a pivotal part of the institutional implementation of peace and a way forward into a more peaceful future. The chapter explores this concept, suggests a tangible approach to education for peace, and explains its importance for promoting peace. The chapter concentrates largely on different sources from the United Nations and international law that refer to the promotion of peace, keeping in mind the institutional mechanisms to foster peace.

Keywords:   peace, education, institutional implementation, conflict, international law, institutional mechanisms
