This book supports learning about conflict. Its multidisciplinary contents explain how the study of conflict, responses to it, and education about it have occurred. Additionally, the book contributes information about learning in discipline-based peace education, in formal as well as informal contexts. Described here are experiences of adults who learned in different situations about conflict, responses to it, and the role of those processes in peace development. University instructors, the contributors to this book who have been examining conflict transformation in their fields, facilitated the learning processes in their discipline-based courses and in community settings.
