Peace-Building and Conflict Resolution Collection Launch

About this event

The ethics of peace are not limited to UN Security Council Resolutions, which delineate since 1946 the authorization for the "maintenance of international peace and security". The question of international intervention as "ius ad interventionem" should be distinguished from a broad framework of efforts made by non-governmental organizations to manage and transform conflicts, both on local, regional and international dimensions. The major religions, legal and normative doctrines have provided important concepts for understanding pacifism which, as an ethical and religious attitude, must map the multiple facets of conflicts across the world. The Peace Building and Conflict Resolution collection make available (mainly) open-access resources on the subject of peacebuilding because the importance of information for conflict resolution is as great as our capacity for understanding and of goodwill. Library offers through this interdisciplinary collection an important contribution to global peace ethics, covering a wide range of political, social, cultural, economic and (inter-) religious perspectives of peacebuilding.
