In recent times there has been increased recognition of peace education by educational and policy authorities, and also a substantial addition in the number of publications in peace education. Considering the growth of knowledge within peace education, this article reflects on ways peace education as an educational paradigm meets a group of criteria that comprise established frameworks in philosophy of education. The process of knowledge legitimation within science and social science is considered, with some reflections of the role of the Journal of Peace Education in this process of paradigmatic consolidation.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
