Abstract

This paper explores two alternatives for supporting the idea that education is essential for building peace: 1) to prove this idea through empirical evidence; and 2) to substantiate it theoretically. It concludes that privileging evidence over theory can fail to specify how education must change in order to build peace and justice, allowing for the circulation of the idea that any and all education will necessarily build peace, which is currently unsupported either by empirical evidence or theoretical argument.
