The group has some local and international projects currently active and it will consider how to include them.


  • Aims and objectives: The RU is meant to organize and share focuses on topics related to the development of a peace-oriented culture, interpreted in a broad sense as a combination of values, knowledge, practices, actions, habits, but also policies, strategies which, from a pedagogical perspective are translated in theories and methodologies of education oriented to the deconstruction of the different ways in which violence could emerge. The RU shares, moreover, an interdisciplinary interest for the development of researches and studies related to the broad concept of sustainability. Referring to the concept of sustainability means to consider the educational and ethic commitment of doing research. The first RU objective is to integrate the researches, studies and the networks which each member has already developed in order to open a direct debate and a mutual enrichment, thus experiencing a local model of cooperation and scientific participation. The appreciation of the resources and of the knowledge of each researcher involved will contribute to the development of theories, methods and instruments for the dissemination of a culture of peace, interpreted also as an educational proposal for professionals in the fields of education within the lifelong learning processes.
