Coalition for Peace as a Human Right

The Center for Global Community and World Law
invites you to join its
Coalition to Support the Human Right to Peace

Building on the efforts of those involved in the Decade of a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World (2001-2010), this Coalition represents the cooperative partnership between sponsoring governments and civil society to advance the achievements of past generations by recognizing the principle of the Human Right to Peace. Such a right is anchored in the United Nations Charter, the Universal Declaration of Human rights and the Declaration and Programme of Action on Culture of Peace. The activities of the Coalition strengthen the global movement for the Human Right to Peace initiated by civil society that has attracted the support of 900 plus organizations from all parts of the world.

The Coalition was launched at a well-attended event on 24 March 2011 in Worcester, the second largest city of Massachusetts, United States in the presence of civil society representatives and Ambassador Anwarul K. Chowdhury, Chairperson of the International Drafting Committee of the Declaration on the Human Right to Peace and Vice-Chairperson of the Santiago Congress on the Human Right to Peace.
