Peace & Disarmament Education: Changing Mindsets to Reduce Violence & Sustain Removal of Small Arms

Peace & Disarmament Education: Changing Mindsets to Reduce Violence & Sustain Removal of Small Arms

This book summarizes the learnings from a partnership between the Hague Appeal for Peace and the United Nations Department for Disarmament Affairs exploring disarmament as an essential issue for peace education.

It seeks to provide educators with ways to bring attention to weapons both as tools and symbols of the culture of violence that perpetuates war and armed conflict. The project invites critical reflection on the acceptance of the inevitability of war, the logic of force in politics and the conflation of conflict with violence. The participating peace educators in Albania, Cambodia, Niger and Peru have challenged these assumptions in community – and schools-based learning experiences that have taught both substantive and symbolic lessons in disarmament.
