Une éducation à la paix au Liban : les projets d'innovation éducative des établissements scolaires maronites. Étude menée dans les écoles du Caza de Baabda

Abstract : This thesis focuses on the role of innovative educational projects done at the maronite schools in order to promote peace education in Lebanon.The aim of our research is to establish the possibility of peace education peace education through the vision of the Maronite Church translated into synodal texts, the educational projects and establishment projects as well as their application at maronite schools, and the internalization of different aspects of peace by students along with the demonstration of this acquisition in their behavior.The conceptual framework of the research is grounded on the five models of Peace Education by Harris and Morrison (2003). A sixth model, the mutual understanding and communication education was added.In an attempt to verify the hypotheses and answer the research question, an analysis of maronite synod texts was administered, and a study was made in maronite schools in the Caza of Baabda, where school directors were interviewed and secondary students were surveyed. To analyze the data, the "Ep-meter", a Peace Education measurement tool for schools, was created. This tool helped interpret the synod texts, the results of the interviews, and the statistical data collected from the students.The results of the study revealed that the innovative projects administered at maronite schools partially contributed to the promotion of Peace Education. Hence, in light of the six Models of Peace Education, maronite schools in Lebanon must reconsider their educational practices to help students acquire the different aspects of peace and apply them.Finally, the thesis encourages the maronite schools to: reread the synod texts in order to be faithful to the vision of the Maronite Church; review their projects and especially the educational and establishment projects in order to become coherent with the six Models of Peace Education; train teachers develop their classes and activities in the light of the six models of Peace Education.
