Why peace with justice is important

Peace with justice is a way of thinking and acting which promotes nonviolent solutions to everyday problems and thereby contributes to a civil society

Peace with justice

  • sets standards for the security of children and for primary health care
  • promotes an end to the violence of poverty
  • facilitates personal fulfilment through the creation of rewarding opportunities in education and employment
