This publicaiton shows how peace education has responded to difficult political contexts over the decades and demonstrates that peace education is relevant to conflict prevention and peacebuilding today. The report makes the case for a multi-layered approach to peace education which requires a cohesive, coordinated strategy for peace education as a peacebuilding and conflict prevention tool across relevant EU internal and external policies and programmes.
