Primary school textbooks can provide space for learning about peace and inclusion but can also reinforce messages of inequality and division. This article describes a thematic analysis of South Sudan’s textbooks for pupils in Grade 4 Social Studies, English, and Christian Religious Education. The analysis uses a conceptual framework that positions education as having multiple potential overlapping roles in relation to conflict—victim, accomplice, and transformer—to show that the textbooks’ conte...

Humans are intrinsically susceptible to extremist ideologies. A more humanizing approach to education would help us both to reduce prejudice toward others and to recognize our own human vulnerability to racism and other fundamentally destructive worldviews. Reflecting on the lessons learned from an outburst of violent racist extremism two decades ago and insights from the field of teaching and learning about the Holocaust, the author argues that our individual susceptibility and institutional vu...
This article explores the relationship between violence and education. It does this by referring to some of the literature in critical pedagogy that investigates how the structure and outcome of education as a social force can be violent in a number of ways. Having discussed how schools are violent in modes that are symbolic, structural, and physical, the article concludes with some of the pathways that twenty-first-century education could be taking to ensure that schools help build the foundati...

Across the globe, linguistically heterogeneous populations increasingly define school systems at the same time that developing the ability to communicate cross-culturally is becoming essential for internationalized economies. While these trends seem complimentary, they often appear in paradoxical opposition as represented in the content and execution of nationwide education policies. Given the differing geopolitical contexts within which school systems function, wide variation exists with regard...
Human rights organizations have been rapidly searching for ways to combat the acceleration of human rights abuses within the United States and Europe, noting a link between the rise of the far right and increasing instances of discrimination, intolerance and violence against marginalized communities. And yet, increased efforts among human rights defenders have not stemmed the tide. Instead, drawing on the psychology and neuroscience of morality, the Unified Theory of Western Extremism serves as ...

This article explores how the philosophy for children (P4C) pedagogical model might be well positioned to support the educational strategies associated with the prevention of violent extremism, through early intervention in children’s concept development. Specifically, it considers how the stereotyping of concepts risks interfering with children’s reasoning by engendering relationally problematic views that skew what they might consider valuable, resulting in epistemic rigidity and reduced oppor...

This article examines the ways in which the International Baccalaureate’s Learner Profile is interpreted and enacted in three different national settings. Using the data collected from a comparative study of the Learner Profile in nine International Baccalaureate schools in India, Hong Kong, and Australia, the article problematizes the widely held belief that understandings of the key attributes of the Learner Profile are nationally inflected. It suggests, instead, that these schools relate to t...
The standoff between Palestine and Israel is one of the most entrenched and enduring conflicts in the world. The cycle of violence and mutual blame seems without end. This Viewpoint argues that non-violence is a path that has yet to be taken in attempting to move toward peace and reconciliation. Non-violence has the potential to overcome the trauma and the pervasive feeling of victimhood that exist on both sides. It is however a painful and challenging path that requires Israelis and Palestinian...

Fostering cohesion and acceptance amidst a plurality of cultures and values is a clear context for quality education and also for PVE. This article proposes that deliberative democratic decision making (DDD) can result in agreements on (quasi-universal) values that accommodate both the claims of universal values – including human rights – and cultural pluralism and particularism. The article suggests that any agreed upon values framework itself becomes generative of curriculum and teaching and l...
