This volume on "Education towards a Culture of Peace" is a timely undertaking, since the United Nations has proclaimed the years 20012010 as the "International Decade for a Culture of Peace and NonViolence for the Children of the World." A culture of peace as defined by the UN is "a set of values, attitudes, modes of behaviour and ways of life that reject violence and prevent conflicts by tackling their root causes to solve problems through dialogue and negotiation among individuals, groups and nations". (UN Resolutions A/RES/52/13 1998: Culture of Peace and A/RES/53/243, 1999: Declaration and Programme of Action on a Culture of Peace). Most of the chapters in this book are based on lectures that were presented at the International Conference, "Education towards a Culture of Peace". This conference was convened on 13 December 2003, by the The Josef Burg Chair in Education for Human Values, Tolerance and Peace UNESCO Chair on Human Rights, Democracy, Peace and Tolerance School of Education, at Bar Ilan University, Israel. This conference was held under the auspices of Israel National Commission for UNESCO and supported also by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Jerusalem, The office of Public Affairs of the US Embassy Tel Aviv, Fulbright – United States – Israel Educational Foundation.

Starting from the key idea that learners and teachers bring diverse linguistic knowledge and resources to education, this book establishes and explores the concept of the ‘multilingual turn’ in languages education and the potential benefits for individuals and societies. It takes account of recent research, policy and practice in the fields of bilingual and multilingual education as well as foreign and second language education. The chapters integrate theory and practice, bringing together researchers and practitioners from five continents to illustrate the effects of the multilingual turn in society and evaluate the opportunities and challenges of implementing multilingual curricula and activities in a variety of classrooms. Based on the examples featured, the editors invite students, teachers, teacher educators and researchers to reflect on their own work and to evaluate the relevance and applicability of the multilingual turn in their own contexts.

This book, by award-winning author Grace Feuerverger, explores teaching and learning in schools as a sacred life journey, a quest toward liberation. Written for teacher/educators who wish to make a real difference in the lives of their students, this book speaks to everyone who finds themselves, as she did, on winding and often treacherous paths, longing to discover the meaning and potential in their professional lives at school. This book also honours the struggle of every child who seeks to be rescued, to be heard, and to speak the truth about his or her lived experience. Many such students fall by the wayside, too weary from experiences of violence, war, poverty or other oppressions to continue on their journey towards the life force. A child of Holocaust survivors, Feuerverger wrote this book to tell how School can be a magical place where miracles happen. She shares narratives about her school teaching years, about her university teaching and about her research work. Unifying these is a story of how language, culture and school serendipitously all came together in her childhood to offer her a way to survive --- a path towards repair and restoration. In an era of narrow agendas of 'efficiency' and 'control' in schools, this book dares to suggest that education is and always will be about uplifting of the human spirit. It advocates for the priceless opportunity that good public education can give to students of all backgrounds. Every chapter of this book offers both inspiration and direction, discussing in a multiplicity of ways the act of creating and of being in classrooms as sites of cultural encounters and spaces for possibility and community and knowledge. Each classroom calls out for a witness. Each student is an angel in disguise. Each lesson is a work-in-progress. Each teacher is both an artist and a muse. This book underscores the mystery and the majesty of the teaching-learning experience as an act of courage, love and hope. Teaching is not solely about technique but also about presence, about awareness of both the frailties and potentials of humankind, about helping to create a world more joyful, more creative, more articulate, more compassionate, and more peaceful than it is now. It is first and foremost about sharing dreams of a better future with our students, about saving lives. Nothing more or less really matters.

This collection asks theorists and educational practitioners from around the world influenced by the schools of feminist pedagogy, critical pedagogy, anti-racist or postcolonial pedagogy, and gay and lesbian pedagogy to reflect upon the possibilities of articulating a "curriculum of difference" that critically examines the cross-cultural issues of peace and education that are at the forefront of global education issues today. Contributors examine the conceptualizations of peace and education within, between, and across cultures through the conceptualization of pedagogical possibilities that create an openness toward the horizons of the other within communal formations of difference permeating the public sphere. They take up new ways of questions related to globalization, difference, community, identity, peace, democracy, sexuality, ethics, conflict, politics, feminism, technology, language rights, cultural politics, Marxism, and deconstruction that have a vast literary history in and outside the area of "education." This volume makes a significant contribution to the question of difference and its quintessential role in peace education for the new millennium.
