Transrational Peace Education to Reduce Epistemic Violence

New Article by Josefina Echavarria Alvarez, co-authored with Hilary Cremin and Kevin Kester.

Exciting new research fresh from the printing press of Peace Review: A Journal of Social Justice:  Starting from the observation that there are three crises for peace education today: first nationalism, second continuous colonialism and third a continuous emphasis on rational forms of learning, which can be found in many peace education projects, Hillary Cremin, Josefina Echavarría Alvarez and Kevin Kester propose a transrational approach to peace education to reduce epistemic violence.
