Peace education has never been more important than it is today. Despite its long history, peace education has never found a place in the curriculums that it deserves.

There is a great richness of activity taking place in peace education, but it has often existed on the margins of mainstream practice. Now, in the face of war in Europe, educators are demanding resources, knowledge and strategies to develop students’ understandings of this conflict, and human conflict more generally.

This symposium on peace education is part of the activities of the Peace Education Special Interest Group at the IOE. This relatively new group aims to bring peace educators across educational spheres together. You can read more about the group on the UCL Peace Education blog.
