Octavianus Digdo Hartomo and Hermawan Pancasiwi
Abstract—Soegijapranata Catholic University has developed Peace Education Learning in Ambon, one of Indonesia’s Post Conflict Areas. It is designed for students to have more realistic pictures and based on local wisdom in in initiating and building peace in their communities. Considering that a lot of young people do not go to universities but they experience their daily life within pluralistic society, it is also necessary to provide them peace education. The important idea is to develop strategic alliances with all stakeholders in post conflict areas. Peace education is also possibly disseminated to some parties like the head of village, NGOs, local government, traditional leaders and community leaders that are expected to see and even to implement the peace education module and activities in any kind of community education activity.

Index Terms—Peacebuilding education, strategic alliances, post conflict areas.
