World BEYOND War believes that education is a critical component of a global security system and an essential tool for getting us there.
We educate both about and for the abolition of war. Our educational resources are based on knowledge and research that expose the myths of war and illuminate the proven nonviolent, peaceful alternatives that can bring us authentic security. Of course, knowledge is only useful when it’s applied. Thus we also encourage citizens to reflect upon critical questions and engage in dialogue with peers toward challenging assumptions of the war system. These forms of critical, reflective learning have been well documented to support increased political efficacy and action for system change.
Learn why World War II is not a good justification for military spending and war planning, both because WWII happened in a very different world from today's and because common beliefs about justifications for WWII are false.
With what do we replace the war system? What truly makes us secure? What are the moral, social, political, philosophical and pragmatic foundations of an alternative global security system – a system in which peace is pursued by peaceful means?
