The concept of peace education has received much attention in academic circles around the world. The peace education has already been included in the curricula either as a separate subject or mixed with other subjects. After the great wars in the worlds, the countries have taken the initiative of peace education. The fact that peace education when taught consciously, has an impact on the lives of the students, has been proven in different research studies. The students would turn peaceful future citizens of the nations. Although peace education has been introduced in institutions across the globe, its place in higher education is still not where it should be. As compared to university faculty, the school teachers are more capable in better teaching their students in peace studies. Now, some universities offer programs like 'conflict management', 'transformation' etc., which shows concerns at higher education level. Mostly, these peace-education based programs are offered by the department of political sciences in universities. It is recommended that peace studies or subjects related to it may be introduced in all disciples of the university. In this way, the students who did not receive peace education in their school life, may avail the chance to learn about them at university level.
