  • Introduction

    The field of gender, peace and education has emerged over recent decades; become institutionalized through policymaking, legal practice, and the development of practitioner models; and been enhanced through academic research. During transitions from conflict, gender concerns are rarely taken into account adequately. Gender-based violence, especially against women, often persists. Also, most transitional justice processes have failed to afford a safe space for victims to talk about the violence they experienced and to redress the harms they have suffered.

    Education is the key to uniting nations, bringing human beings closely together. In many parts of the world, civil society suffers because of situations of violent conflicts and war. It is important to recognize the crucial role of education in contributing to building a culture of peace and condemning instances in which education is undermined in order to attack democracy and tolerance. Keeping this in view the special issue on gender, peace and education has been developed. Gender equality, development, peace and education are linked: there can be no peace without proper education, and no country can prosper without gender equality. Keeping these in view the special issue on gender, peace and education has been developed.

    Sub Themes:
    Gender and Peace Education
    Women and Peace Education
    Building Peace through Education

    Any other issues related to the Above Topics
