Inter-Agency Peace Education Programg

Read the booklet online.

This new UNESCO publication describes a program for the introduction of peace education and conflict minimization for refugee and returnee children. The program is designed to enable people to think constructively about living together and about solving problems that arise in their communities through peaceful means. It also allows the learners to practice these skills.

The program described is currently being implemented in eleven countries in Africa, and has been integrated into complementary programmes in Kosovo, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

It is run by UNESCO in collaboration with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
