Review of a collaboration between United Nations Research Institute for Social development (UNRISD) and the Department of Peace and Conflict Research at Uppsala University Sweden. Ashok Swain discusses ‘Knowledge, Identity and Power’. He links education and power through the control of knowledge. Knowledge he argues can be used despotically through a ‘master discourse’ designed to impose national identity; or knowledge is owned by people whose critical skills have been sharpened.
