UNESCO MGIEP'’s focus lies in exploring and engaging with the strong interlinkages between peace and sustainable development and making interventions in the education systems to impart these principles. The first publication from the Institute ‘Education for Peace and Sustainable Development: Concepts, Clarity and Cohesion’ explores the interlinkages and interdependencies of Education for Peace and Education for Sustainable Development. The monograph contains four concept papers which elaborate on the interlinkages between education, peace and sustainable development, define the gaps in the current approach to education for peace and sustainable development and argue for a comprehensive approach to issues of peace and sustainability to be incorporated in education systems. UNESCO MGIEP aims to develop a theoretical framework to look at the interlinkages between peace and sustainability in a holistic manner and this monograph is the first exercise towards building this discourse.
