Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
Tony Jenkins is Education Director of the National Peace Academy and serves as the Global Coordinator of the International Institute on Peace Education; Co-Director of the Peace Education Center at Teachers College, Columbia University; coordinator of the Global Campaign for Peace Education; and a regular visiting professor at the UN mandated University for Peace in Costa Rica. In 2006, collaborating with colleagues and peace educators from around the world, Tony conceived and launched “Community-Based Institutes on Peace Education,” or CIPE. CIPEs are communities of formal and non-formal educators who learn with and from each other to address and transform local manifestations of violence through education and active citizen participation. Successful CIPE communities have thus far been established in Colombia, India, Peru, Mindanao in the Philippines, Tanzania, and Ukraine. Tony’s current work and research interests focus on examining the impacts and effectiveness of peace education methods and pedagogies in nurturing personal, social and political change and transformation. He is also interested in formal and non-formal educational design and development with special interest in alternative security systems, disarmament, and gender.

Among his recent publications are “A Peace Education Response to Modernism: Reclaiming the Social and Pedagogical Purposes of Academia” in Educators as Peacemakers: Transforming Education for Global Peace (2008) edited by Jing Lin and Christa Bruhn; “Disarming the System, Disarming the Mind” in Peace Review (2006); and co-authored with Betty Reardon “Gender and Peace: Towards an Gender Inclusive, Holistic Perspective” in the Handbook of Peace and Conflict Studies (2007) edited by Johan Galtung and Charles Webel.

Hi Tony, I am George from India , a retired teacher, continuing my efforts to spread compassion and peace through formal and non formal education. It is a sad thing to note that even inspite of the International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children announced by the UN, nothing substantial has happened in India in the field of peace education, except some casual mention, more on a traditional line.I am much interested to get insights into your Indian experience and work in the field of peace education. We have started an NGO for the purpose and we are in need of some guidelines and support. I think this group shall be a great inspiration for our work. Thank you.
