This document discusses and documents the answers that 50 experts representing 22 countries gave to two questions: (1) Do you think it is at all possible for schools to contribute to a "peace education"? and (2) If so, what are some to the steps and measures to be taken that you think of first? Part 1 of the report attempts to summarize some major aspects of the answers, while part 2 gives a more detailed documentation of the interview areas in this area. The interviews had the character of relatively free conversation. The usual main questions were employed, but these main questions often had a very open character, the interviewer allowed and encouraged the respondents to converse in a natural manner. The group interviewed had a multifarious and usually long experience related to peace issues and peace education. The answers to the first question are rather brief probably because the interviewees are from a group of people who were chosen because of their interest in and knowledge about the topic of peace education. Also, they had already had the opportunity to make comments on the introductory questions of the interview; the answers, therefore, would be fairly predictable. The second question was formulated to elicit some examples of what the respondent thought could be done by the teacher in the classroom situation to contribute to peace education. Promotion strategies suggested include concerned individuals, flexible strategy, collaborative efforts at the local level, and teacher training. (DK)
