Inter-Disciplinary Approach to Developing Curriculum for Peace

Dr. S.W. Wodi

Abstract


This paper discusses the issues of peace building in our cotemporary society and highlights the importance of peaceful co-existence in a multi-plural configuration like Nigeria. In this article, peace is viewed more in terms of ideological inclination at solving societal problems rather than merely chronicling incidence of war and other conflicts that might be a time bomb for resolving political, economic, social as well as religious differences in society. The paper emphases the value of peace in a democracy as this has the mechanism and the capacity to resolve global and regional issues that might give rise to conflict situation arising from lack of justice, equity and fairness in human interaction. Finally this paper sees a clear link between developing a positive attitude towards peace and peaceful co-existence and the obvious need to gradually tailor our curriculum along that direction.
