We are living in the 21st century known as the knowledge century. More than thirty years ago, Alvin Toffler with his sharp intellect had visualized the future world and predicted, "Mind power will rule the world in this century, not the muscle and money". How the mind power is rulling the world is evident to all of us. Consequently, all of us feel disheartened and even horrified to see the kind of violent acts the man is committing against the man and the nature. It is sad to observe that we are living in an era of unprecedented violence in the form of terrorism, war, crimes, injustice and anxiety and exploitation. The present phenomenon is not spreading the message of "Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam" but is giving the negative message of violence, heartedness and selfishness to the world. The cardinal question is what to do in such a situation?'

The learned and distinguishedparticipants discussed a range of issues includinf promotion of peace culture socialcohesion and peace education, and the role of teacher education institutionsfor peace ? education.We have published selected papers of the said conferences inthe form this book.
