    Glocal Justice and Peacebuilding

    This course seeks to provide an overview of the relationship between conflicts and social justice at local and global levels as well as peacebuilding initiatives to transform such conflicts in both South and North contexts.  It identifies structural violence or social and economic inequalities and injustices as one of the root causes of global and local (glocal) conflicts  and also explores strategies whereby nations and their citizens can live together with justice and compassion to build a culture of peace through personal and social action. Drawing  on case studies in diverse regions in the Global South, four  specific themes or sectors will be critically examined, including paradigms of development and globalization, the  rural poor, women and children, and indigenous peoples.   Educators, professionals  and peacebuilders working in formal as well as non-formal educational contexts are welcome to enroll in the course.  It will provide ideas and strategies for integrating  the theme of  glocal (global and local) justice in programmes of global citizenship education and other interrelated fields of transformative education.     Course Preview     ※For any inquiries regarding taking the course, please contact GCED Online Campus administrators, gcedonline@unescoapceiu.org.
