JUST PEACEMAKING

Just Peacemaking: The New Paradigm for the Ethics of Peace and War is the product of 23 scholars across various denominations who have collaborated annually since 1992 to specify the 10 practical steps and develop the undergirding principles of this critical approach:

  1. Support nonviolent direct action
  2. Take independent initiatives to reduce threat
  3. Use cooperative conflict resolution
  4. Acknowledge responsibility for conflict and injustice and seek repentance and forgiveness
  5. Advanced democracy, human rights, and religious liberty
  6. Foster just and sustainable economic development
  7. Work with emerging cooperative forces in the international system
  8. Strengthen the United Nations and international efforts for cooperation and human rights
  9. Reduce offensive weapons and weapons trade
  10. Encourage grassroots peacemaking groups and voluntary associations

    Originally published in 1998 and revised in 2004, this new 2008 edition contains a new introduction and conclusion, as well as updated contents.
