About Education for peace (EFP)
The International Education for Peace Institute (EFP-International) is a research, training, development,and service institution dedicated to the cause of peace. EFP-International began its work in June 2000 bylaunching a two-year pilot project of Education for Peace in three primary and three secondary schools in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), with the participation of more than 400 teachers and school staff, 6,000 students and many of their parents/guardians.
By 2006, The EFP Program has been implemented in some 112 schools with approximately 80,000 students; 5,000 teachers, school staff, and administrators; and thousands of parents/guardians. Currently (2009), we are halfway in a 6-year program to incorporate the EFP Curriculum into the BiH education reform process, thus involving all 2200+ schools with about 1.5 million students and 110,000 teachers and school staff in the study of all subjects from grades 1–12 within the parameters of peace. EFP Programs are now being introduced into schools in the United States and plans are underway for their Introduction into schools in several countries in Africa and Asia, and South America.
