Chapter Peace Education and Political Science

The term “peace education” is not one political scientists use and certainly not a concept that political science has considered very much, yet this does not mean that work in political science has nothing to say on questions of interest to the eld. It can be argued that the term “peace education” itself is a barrier that makes it dif cult for most political scientists to see or make signi cant connections between the concerns of peace education and their own work. In addition, political scientists have contributions to make to peace education that could enrich it conceptually and empirically.
