DossierPositive Peace

Peace is more than the absence of war. Modern violent conflicts not only have direct, but also indirect and structural causes such as poverty, hunger, political discrimination, as well as domestic and international competition. The term "positive peace" takes these aspects into account and aims for a state in which not only direct violence is suspended, but indirect and structural forms of violence are also preventatively and sustainably eliminated.
