A study published by UNESCO International Bureau of Education, this book is geared toward national policy-makers, curriculum specialists, and educators alike. It synthesizes many goals, such as education for peace, human rights, citizenship and health-preserving behaviours, for the ultimate aim of "learning to live together". Examining numerous cases of post-conflict and transition settings, the study proposes ways to help students become politely assertive rather than violent, to understand conflict and its prevention, to respect human rights, to become mediators and to become active and responsible members of society.
