"I use my thesis to call for change"

I sitt tacktal säger Maggie O'Neill:

- In my thesis I argue that the peace discourses created in World’s Largest Lesson creates a concept of peace that is dehistoricized, depoliticized and decontexualized. It creates a version of peace that privileges individuals and maintains the status quo.

- I use my thesis to call for change… for all of us to ask ourselves - what kind of world are we educating for? What connections are we making or not making? And who is really benefiting?
