Peace Education Competence Framework

The competence framework provides the user with a general understanding on peace education and a set of essential competences included in peace education. With this set of competences, the educator can create and establish educational programmes considering peace education as a transversal element to be observed in all types of educational activities. The section starts with a brief introduction on what is peace education; it continues with a step by step guide on how to introduce peace education into non-formal education activities while developing educational programmes; three main competences areas summarise and categorise the different competences to be developed by the learners: conceptual aspects, competences necessary to live in peace at individual levels and competences to trigger peace within groups and communities. The last section provides with an definitions of terms and concepts that are used in this competence framework.
