New Prajnya Study: Survey of Civil Society Peace Education Initiatives

We finally posted Anupama Srinivasan’s study, “A Survey of Civil Society Peace Education Programmes in South Asia” on our website, take a look.

As the abstract says:

This paper surveys the engagement of civil society with peace education in South Asia, specifically focusing on initiatives in the classroom. It describes the key players engaged in peace education efforts and seeks to understand their motivations. It discusses the nature of these interventions, focusing on the specific activities and processes involved in a particular project. Finally it highlights some of the key challenges each country faces in implementing and sustaining peace education in classrooms.

We are delighted that this study has been well-received for its conceptualization, its utility and its timely distribution. It has received a mention in other websites, such as the MacArthur Foundation’s Asian Security Initiative blog and the Global Campaign for Peace Education newsletter.
