All communities have the right to Peace, and those affected by war and violence are in an urgent need to pacific coexistence. In emergency situations such as armed conflicts, repeated cultivated violence with increasing persistence, culture of peace is the most relevant required tool more than ever. It offers protection and contributes to the self-resilience of young people and communities.
Culture of peace, in particular, plays a unique role in the interdependence of the world, cooperation and social cohesion. It is” a powerful drive for change and a catalyst for recovery”. Culture of peace is the only one preventive tool to ensure the future.
The Culture of peace is underpinned by a two-fold perspective. Firstly, it is shaped by the strong conviction that peace as a right offers protection and mitigates “the psychosocial impact of conflicts, violence and wars by providing a sense of normalcy, stability, structure and hope for the future. Secondly, it recognizes that culture of peace plays a unique role in all contexts, in stability, in emergencies and in wars as it produces the leaders for prevention of crises and for and after crises.
