Peace pedagogy is a normative approach to teaching and learning that aims to reduce violence in all its forms.  To best understand peace pedagogy, one must understand the full spectrum of violence that affects the world.  In positive peace theory, violence indicates more than direct physical harm; rather, violence constitutes any situation where systemic, societal, economic, political, or interpersonal factors affect the ability of a person to live with comprehensive human dignity.  Study abroad as peace pedagogy can be an applied approach to the framework outlined above.  Study abroad as peace pedagogy uses the platform of educational travel and experiential learning in a cross cultural setting as an introduction to the moral-political methods of peace education.  At the core of study abroad as peace pedagogy rests themes of anti-racism and cultural humility that combat the post-colonial framework of international relations. Consistent with the five primary foci of peace education, study abroad as peace pedagogy manifests in relevant ways within a contemporary context. This webinar will introduce the framework of peace pedagogy and the application of study abroad as peace pedagogy.
