Peace Leadership Education: Stories of Growth, Training, and Development
Download Full Text
Peace education is a philosophy and practice that aims to equip learners with the skills and behaviors to enable them to become peaceful citizens capable of resolving the conflicts faced in their communities and beyond and working to establish a culture of peace through dismantling systems that contribute to prejudice, violence, and hatred. This chapter argues that peace education is an alternative to the culture of violence that dominates many societies around the world and provides a discussion of important authors and scholars. These notions of peace education are then explored through the stories of four peace leadership education endeavors. Utilizing integral peace leadership as a guiding frame, these educational endeavors explored the ways to create cultures of peace in communities and schools. The chapter concludes with a commitment to use integral peace leadership as a vehicle for promoting a more peaceful culture committed to social change and overcoming the hindrances to local and international peace.
