|Chapter 3 - Annex 4: Education for Peace and Conflict Resolution|
Education for Development, now accommodated within the Education Section of the Programme Division, has focused its work on:
· producing training materials,
· conducting training workshops,
· providing country specific technical support.
A training manual Education for Conflict Resolution was produced in 1996. The manual:
· was piloted in 43 countries, both industrialized and developing;
· draws upon activities used in conflict resolution programmes around the world;
· is intended for use in the training of trainers and others who will design and implement conflict resolution education programmes for young children in the formal and non-formal educational sectors;
· explores strategies for teaching about communication skills, handling emotions, self-awareness, cooperation, decision-making, conflict resolution, and dealing with prejudice;
· includes a section on programme planning in which trainers evaluate the appropriateness of the activities for their own cultural context and design a country-specific teacher training programme;
· is available from the Education Section, Programme Division, UNICEF, New York.
More recently, the Education Section has produced a Working Paper on Peace Education which provides an overview of Peace Education programmes in UNICEF, analyses trends and provides a more coherent framework for work in peace education. This is also available from the Education Section, Programme Division, UNICEF New York.
