Monday 16th August 2021

The Best Weapon for Peace - Maria Montessori, Education, and Children's Rights is a recently published book by Erica Moretti that examines Montessori's lifelong pacifist work. Moretti shows that Montessori's educational theories and practices would come to define children's rights once adopted by influential international organizations, including the United Nations. She uncovers the significance of Montessori's evolving philosophy of peace and early childhood education within broader conversations about internationalism and humanitarianism.
