DMZ and Peace Education in Global Context
In this session, presenters will have the opportunity to inform the international community of the situation of the division of the Korean peninsula and prominent scholars and activists from around the world will hold in-depth discussions on the direction of new peace and reunification education.
This session will be a platform to discuss relations between peaceful and non-peaceful methods inherent in our society and also how the DMZ can contribute to creating a peaceful paradigm on the Korean Peninsula. Participants will include a peace educator from the UK; an ICU peace studies professor from Japan; activists from around the world including the director of Border Peace Schools; international and local researchers and scholars on the DMZ region; and peace and reunification educators.
Participants will examine topics on peace and reunification education by focusing on the process of reunification through the establishment of a peaceful regime on the Korean peninsula, as well as methods to develop these discussions into peace and reunification education within schools and educational sites beyond the classroom.
