Schools as Zones of Peace in Nepal
The four-year long action research in far-eastern Nepal blends peace education, social studies and local (ethnic) politics within national, post-conflict and state-building efforts. The outcomes of these studies and programs suggest a recipe for peaceability that could be included in the country's educational curricula. A formula - PACE B3.i3 squared - synthesizes how educationalists may transform teaching into laboratories to develop the future peace-makers of their nation.
