Peace education includes lessons about conflict sources, transformation, and resolution. While featuring field-based examples in multiple disciplines, including political science, anthropology, communication, psychology, sociology, counseling, law, and teacher training, this book presents real cases of conflict work. The contributors explain the concepts underlying conflict transformation and the strategies that have been adapted for professional practice. They also describe formal peace education with university students in different fields of study and informal learning of adults in community settings.
