Chapter Unity-Based Peace Education: Education for Peace Program in Bosnia and Herzegovina: A Chronological Case Study

This chapter is a chronological case study report on the pilot phase of the EFP program, which in the past 9 years (2000-2009) has been implemented in 112 primary and secondary schools in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). The chapter is written in a narrative format and covers the context, conceptual framework, program description, program outcome, and evaluation and research process of the project. Three interrelated peace education challenges-conceptual, methodological, and evaluation-are reviewed in light of empirical and research ndings emerging from the implementation of the EFP program in BiH, involving some 80,000 students, 5,000 teachers, and tens of thousands of parents/guardians.
