The United Nations Charter and other international instruments promote justice and international law as cornerstones of peace and security, nationally and internationally. This chapter looks into the avenues and precepts of inculcating an appreciation for international law and international principles (for example those on crime prevention and criminal justice or human rights) through education at the university level and, especially, at the pre-university level. It discusses ways in which relevant learning takes place both in the regular curriculum and in such extra-curricular activities as Model United Nations Conferences, which involve both high school and university students. Various efforts by the United Nations and its Specialized Agencies to stimulate such education are noted, such as "United Nations Academic Impact Initiative". So too is the dearth both of curricular requirements and of teaching materials suitable for teaching the subject at the pre-university level. Note is taken of a handful of excellent teaching aids that are available.
