For Religions for Peace, peace means more than just an end to war. It also includes the ongoing work of:
Promoting justice, human rights and reconciliation
- Take the initiative for international advocacy actions with relevant partners to promote justice in situations of grave injustice.
- Promote reconciliation processes as part of transitional justice, e.g., through representation and solidarity visits by the World Council and the Regional Councils.
Assisting in social reconstruction and healing in post conflict societies
- Compile resources and develop best practices on multi-religious approaches to post-conflict healing.
- Advocate for the participation of religious communities in social reconstruction processes and mobilize women’s leadership in social reconstruction through consultations and training.
Confronting social and cultural violence
- Implement global advocacy to confront and counter social and cultural conflicts, including explicit and hidden sources of violence manifested in gender-based violence and violence against children.
- Compile resources and develop best practices and tools to confront these issues.
Promoting peace education
- Collect resources of multi-religious approaches to peace education.
- Participate in and assist religious institutions to participate in peace education.
