- Product Description
Peace, understood as a way of being and relating in our world, represents a fundamental epistemological challenge within and for institutions of higher education. Many peace programs have been born in this postmodern era rife with conflict to offer a foundation for peace education. This book presents a compelling examination of the challenges to bridging peace and education within educational institutions through a regional study based in the US. Personal interviews were conducted to ascertain whether structural impediments exist within the academy inhibiting a scholarly inquiry of peace with the results indicating that ideology and the role of research concerning peace are the predominate institutional impediments or barriers to a holistic and effective peace education program within the university setting. This analysis provides a critical step in the development of peace studies within the United States and should be especially useful to peace and conflict scholars, deans and administrators of liberal arts schools, as well as the engaged peace activist exploring the connections between peace and education.
