Education for Peace: Building Possibilities Through Countering Hegemony

Education for Peace: Building Possibilities Through Countering Hegemony talks about the lived experiences, locale, spatial dimensions and perception of the clientele of the government schools in Assam. The book looks into overt and covert pedagogical processes to understand the process of identity formation in educands through school education. It captures perceptions of the clientele exploring possibilities of developing pedagogy of ‘Education for Peace’. The ‘Counter Hegemony Model’ proposed in the book depict the process of Dialogue and Transformative pedagogy. The book has been able to position ‘Education for Peace’ conceptually and simultaneously proposes strategies for its realisation in the context of seemingly intractable conflict in Udalguri Assam.
