Policy decisions in education have changed drastically as a result of the recent threats to our international and national security. In this timely and compelling collection, authors discuss the significance of policy decisions on education systems, and argue that all forms of violence, including terrorism, are often reproduced through education. Authors incorporate case studies from a broad spectrum of countries to make a case for peace-building alternatives and non-military security cooperation. Comparative Education, Terrorism and Human Security will highlight education systems around the globe that sustain violence, will bring together human security and preventive diplomacy research to predict future trends, will explore foreign policy implications that could lead to non-violent interventions abroad, and will provide teachers and policymakers with relevant reflections on reform. This book arrives at a time when many of us are wondering what education systems can do to eliminate/perpetuate violence and will be the only one of its kind to address these questions on a global scale.
