Hi All

Welcome to the new blog of the AERA Peace Education SIG!

This is all a new experience for some of us and we look forward to seeing how the blog can help build and sustain our peace education research community. Please let us know your news via the blog.

We are very grateful to Joy Wiggins from the University of Texas at Arlington for setting up and managing the blog :)

Don't forget the new deadline for AERA proposals is 15 July 2009 so please get them in for the Peace Education SIG on time! Please also sign up online to act as Chair and Discussant and Reviewer.

Best wishes all and happy blogging

    Things have been challenging here in Northern Ireland - as you may have seen there have been a number of racist attacks against members of the Romanian community. More than 100 people, including a 5 week old baby, took shelter in a church just down the road from my office and many have since returned to Romania.

    It is now coming into the summer 'marching' season here when divisions can be accentuated. Hopefully with the efforts of right-minded people we will keep a lid on these horrible things. Unfortunately many of us have been warning of growing racism for some time now.

    Yours in peace
