Professor David Johnson, Dept of Comparative Education, Oxford University, on 'Constructing the defences of peace in the "minds of man."' On improving peace education curricula in schools in conflict-affected countries.

This paper will examine how the study of peace is pursued in schools in conflict affected countries. It argues that existing curricula on peace education are limited and proposes that if it is 'in the minds of man' that the constructs of war exist, there is need for a more radical approach to a construction of the philosophical and psychological defences of conflict.
