Why is peace research and education so prominent in Canada?
Page, James Smith (2006) Why is peace research and education so prominent in Canada? Australasian Canadian Studies, 24(1), pp. 19-25.
This essay examines reasons for the prominence of peace research and education within Canada in recent years. I suggest five possible reasons: 1) the migration of US war resisters to Canada during the Vietnam War, 2) the impact of the Vietnam War on Canadian thought and culture, 3) the geographical proximity of Canada to one of the superpowers of the Cold War, 4) the commitment of individuals within Canada to establishing peace research and education and 5) the importance of government support. The essay concludes with some comparative lessons for the strengthening of peace research and education in Australia.
