This collection contains the material developed at or related to the International Ecumenical Peace Convocation in Kingston, Jamaica, 17-25 May 2011.

 

The World Council of Churches' 9th Assembly (Porto Alegre, Brazil, February 2006) decided that "the conclusion of the Decade to Overcome Violence (DOV) be marked by an International Ecumenical Peace Convocation (IEPC)". The Assembly also called for "a process of wide consultation to be undertaken toward developing an ecumenical declaration on "just peace". This consultative process leading up to the IEPC allowed for broad participation with many entry points, and covers a wide spectrum of thematic and methodological approaches.

The IEPC brought together a wide spectrum of people witnessing to the peace of God as a gift and responsibility of the entire human family. It sought to strengthen the church's position on peace, provided opportunities for networking and deepening the churches common commitment to the processes of reconciliation and just peace.
