George Vella
President of the Republic of Malta
3 March 2022

"... By Just Peace, contemporary scholars understand that it is a social state of well-being, in which all relationships are in harmony. Just Peace addresses both structural violence and direct violence as it embraces restorative justice, trauma healing, conflict transformation and peace-building strategies that put the human being at the centre. It also puts an equal balance between peace and justice ..."

"...We all believe in the values of the Just Peace, but the belief itself is insufficient unless it is accompanied by action, so we must together move forward a great achievement for the protection of human beings' humanity and values, first by spreading the culture of just peace, then by drying up the sources of injustice, and finally by achieving harmony..."

Maria Fernanda Espinoza
President of the UN General Assembly (73rd session)
13 June 2019

"...Peace is so much more than the absence of conflict and violence. It rests on respect for the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all persons regardless of any distinction.

It means adherence to the principles of justice, democracy, tolerance, solidarity, cooperation, pluralism and cultural diversity..."

"...A world without peace is a dark world. Nevertheless, if we allow the good word to call up for peace, then it turns into a luminous candle that will not be obscured by darkness. “Peace is a candle,” so we must light it up, bearing in mind that “the weak is the one who always loses peace.” Peace establishes the value of justice without which the very existence of humanity would no longer be valuable..."
