We're dedicated to...
Welcome to the website of Just World Educational, a feisty nonprofit providing educational resources that critically examine the United States’ role in the world, focusing on issues of war, peace, and justice.
In late May 2022, we launched a project, "The Urgency of Banning Nukes", designed to raise awareness of the continuing risks of nuclear conflagration and the great opportunities the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons gives us to end this madness.
In March and April, 2022, we ran a big project on the Ukraine crisis. In March we held eight webinars in which hosts Richard Falk and Helena Cobban explored aspects of the crisis with 17 other great scholars and activists. We then built the records of those convos into a 32-page report titled "Ukraine: Stop the Carnage, Build the Peace", as well as a multimedia Online Learning Hub.
You can learn about the Learning Hub and the Report, and download a PDF of the Report (or order a pre-printed copy from Amazon) at this page on our website.
These resources provide a rich fund of materials that can help to spark discussions and education in your community group, classroom, or congregation.
** In Winter 2022, we ran a weekly podcast series "The World From Palestine." Co-hosts Helena Cobban and Yousef Aljamal explored the intersections between Palestine’s liberation struggle and other anti-imperialist struggles worldwide.
The 30-minute episodes were distributed globally by Just World Podcasts and are available for streaming or download on Apple, Spotify and other major podcast platforms. You can catch all the episodes and transcripts, here.
** In Fall 2021, we ran a small, focused project on Afghanistan, focusing on the humanitarian crisis faced by the country's 39 million people. Read more about it here.
** Between March 2020 and mid-2021, we presented five series of linked, thematic webinars, totaling over two dozen groundbreaking sessions. The videos of all these series-- which covered the topics of Syria, the "World after Covid", the US-China balance, food sovereignty issues in Gaza, Palestine, and Women in South Africa's Struggle against Apartheid-- have been archived onto rich multimedia Resource Pages that are now freely available to the learning public via the Resources tab on this website.
