[Peace 101] Positive Peace and Negative Peace

First time you heard the terms? Yes, you are the readers for this article!

Positive Peace measures how a country acts to prevent conflict. The status that there is no direct and in-direct violence even cultural violence which justify structured violence. (Kenneth E. Boulding criticized because the status is unreachable for human beings.)

Negative Peace is illustrated through the lack of conflict.

Peace 101 is introducing terms of Peace studies. let’s study for applying in our lives.. not only banking them in your head but also acting for peace.


I’m wondering what you think_please vote!

When I was a university student, I took part in a Global camp for the better future as a team manager.

The first day, we were told by the speaker from UN Future forum.. The IT and Nano technology would develop a lot.. The war would be very specific and powerful.. and so on.. I was afraid of happening that scary enormous War!!

The sencond day, each team should talk about how to make our world better.. Our team consisted of students from various countries; India, China, Vietnam, Japan and Korea. They were high-school students and middle-school students..
Our team had various idea such as “1 nation”, “1 language”, “equal society” etc.. (I remember so… little because the camp was about 10 years ago.)

And now… 10 years passed… I’m here and our team mates are working hard at their jobs and countries~ How many people think about how to make our world better?? Hmm.. some might think that that kind of matters can be dealt with someone who don’t have worries for living in daily life.. Yeah.. I thought so..

So, I’m wondering… 1st question When do you think the world… whole world are at peace? Many people want Peace.. but When? not just your community, your country… Whole world.. 🙂

Just imagine… our future..
