EFP Curriculum

Among the main activities of EFP-International is the development of Education for Peace curricula based on current scientific research and universal ethical principles pertaining to peace. The EFP curriculum draws on research findings and insights from a wide range of disciplines including psychology, sociology, political science, education, conflict resolution, literature, history, religion, and philosophy. This integrated conceptual framework forms the basis of EFP-International’s educational programs for children, youth and adults, which aim to serve the well-being of humanity through the systematic promotion of peace, unity-in-diversity, community service and development, consultative and violence-free conflict resolution processes, and post-conflict reconciliation and healing.
