Toward a Unified Strategy for Peace Education: Resolving the two cultures problem in the classroom

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Peace studies have tended to bifurcate into two groups, the normative and the scientific. While such a division of labor is useful for scholarship, it results in a two cultures problem when employed in teaching. This paper presents a strategy that would make students sensitive to both the normative and scientific aspects of peace studies and the relationship between the two. The paper identifies the goals of peace education, derives specific educational objectives to meet the goals, and suggests exercises that could be employed to implement the educational objectives.
