This paper discusses the necessity of integrating peace education in the Lebanese Curriculum. Lebanon has at least 18 different religions and 19 different Political parties. The conflicts within religious and political groups have created tension that has shaped the recent political history. This has profound effects on Lebanon's economic, social, environmental and political performances. The conflicts that have existed amongst its various populations due to many factors cannot be resolved peacefully unless the young generation is educated and trained to resolve conflicts in a peaceful manner. This raises the need to put into practice education programs that introduce peace education into schools either as a separate curriculum or integrated into the curricula of other subjects
