Mainstreaming peace education in educational systems worldwide is one of EGP’s main goals. Building on this objective, we are currently conducting research on how peace education is being implemented in several countries. To provide a broad perspective, the analysis focuses on top-down and bottom-up efforts in this regard.
We hope that findings from the cases studied serve as valuable information for educators and practitioners in the field, as well as for decision-makers. The book’s purpose is to assist peacebuilders and peace educators, as information is shared from one country to another, through the text.
The research for this book will also be a basis for the creation of a Global Peace Education Index (GPEI) – ranking states and societies (Institutions, schools and organizations) on their efforts and level of implementation of peace education in school systems in a regularly published report. The metrics for the ranking will be developed in consultation with an international panel of peace education experts and the contributors too this volume.
We invite peace educators, researchers and practitioners to contribute to this project with research about peace education in different countries* . The main questions to be answered for each case study are:
- How does a particular state define peace education (if there is such) and what are the major elements of peace education being taught in the curriculum (in that particular country)?
- Does the state have any institutional structures devoted to peace education?
• Are there non-state actors’ initiatives on peace education?
- What is the relationship between state (or any of its jurisdictions, institutions, or agencies) and non-state actors regarding peace education?
- Are there any other challenges or actors in the society which are serving as a hindrance to peace education?
• What can be learned and what can be improved?
