Abstract: Peace education has recemtly become very fashionable but little is known about he outcome and impact of both formal and informal peace-education programmes. This book is an attempt to fill the gap between well-meant intentions and reality by exploring the impact of an informal workshop-style peace-education programme in Uganda. From the perspective of the 'alternatives to violence' programme, the author takes the reader on a journey through the theoretical underpinnings and intentions of peace education, unfolds some of the underlying intricacies, challenges and side efforts, and illustrates these with concrete examples. - Anika May has an MA in International Development Studies from ISHSS/UvA and has worked for development agencies in Indonesia, Venezuela, Germany and Brussels. One of her fields of interest is peace and conflict issues and she conducted her thesis research in Uganda where she explored participants' perceptions of a countrywide peace education programme and did consultancy work for the German Development Service (DED). Since the beginning of 2008, she has been working in international cooperation for Context, a development consultancy based in Utrecht, where her work focuses on civic driven change. She is also teaching an undergraduate course at ISHSS/UvA.
