DPCW Law for Peace

Bottom-up approach for global peace through
establishing an international peace law

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE 3 Peace Initiative : DPCW Law for Peace United Nations Sustainable Advocacy Efforts religions nationalities Legislate Peace Campaign legal framework Law for Peace international peace law HWPL ethnicities DPCW Law for Peace DPCW Comprehensive Bottom-Up Movement bottom-up approach   The status of today’s world can be traced back to the two tragic world wars of the last century. But it can found the United Nations. It was founded to respond to the atrocities of conflict and loss of human dignity. Since then, many international agreements and declarations have been developed. But additional challenges such as national and religious conflicts, cultural bias and ethnic hatred have hindered the movement of peace. And innocent civilians have to pay the price.

In this regard, HWPL thinks that the international society needs a comprehensive legal approach that guides citizens’ daily lives, regardless of their nationalities, ethnicities, and religions. To secure peace at both national and international levels, the invention of a legal framework in the form of an international agreement (law) will pave the way for developing peace processes in our world.

These essential objectives of HWPL are manifested in the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) drafted by the HWPL International Law Peace Committee, which is comprised of prominent international law experts from 15 different countries, and proclaimed on 14 March, 2016 in the form of a Preamble, 10 articles and 38 clauses.

Two Key Challenges

Comprehensive Bottom-Up Movement

Under the Law for Peace Initiative, HWPL engages substantially with civil society actors because peace cannot be sustained only through the voices of elites and institutionalized processes. Going beyond all divisional lines, HWPL suggests a civil society function in peace-building, which aims at the implementation of citizens’ advocacy and the voluntary practice of democratic values, thus fostering a culture of peace.

The main activities within this function are carried out under the Legislate Peace Campaign, a bottom-up approach for peaceful conflict resolution through establishing an international peace law. More leaders in politics, legal fields, the press, and faith-based organizations are acknowledging the greater involvement of civil society within the initiative and have implemented joint activities advocating for the ultimate peace system that can encompass all States and peoples.

Sustainable Advocacy Efforts

Civil society actors and government representatives working with HWPL ensure that they will continue to call for a successful Law for Peace Initiative based on governmental and nongovernmental cooperation, thereby building participatory structures which allow sustainable peace settlement. When an international legal framework compatible with the DPCW is established and holds all States accountable for peaceful conflict resolution and ceasing war-like activities, HWPL believes that it will eradicate the structural causes of violent conflicts. This is the source of the sustainable advocacy efforts.

At the crossroads of life and death

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Profound questions at the crossroads of life and death religions Protestantism Muslim lung cancer Irreligion Hinduism George Bernard Shaw crossroads of life and death Catholicism Buddhism Beware of false knowledge Atheism   “It would be better to live long~ But this year, our old man is dead. I should be dead~” One grandmother, terminally ill with lung cancer(Stage 4) said. I’m a medical student. Since doctors stood at the crossroads of life and death, It seems to think more about ‘death‘. Anyone, who are sentenced to death by disease, has no choice but to sob deeply. Frankly, the death is difficult to deal well with for whoever. When I stay at patient’s room, I can see all kinds of religions, Buddhism, Catholicism, Protestantism, Hinduism, Muslim, Atheism, Irreligion. They are so in fear of death. But I’m helpless. I can’t help them. I only can prolong their life for a few year. Everything is because of ‘Ignorance‘.

Beware of false knowledge

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Profound questions at the crossroads of life and death religions Protestantism Muslim lung cancer Irreligion Hinduism George Bernard Shaw crossroads of life and death Catholicism Buddhism Beware of false knowledge Atheism     The reason we are enveloped by fear for death is ‘Ignorance‘. Not only we didn’t know death well, but also we didn’t really think about it. You can think “What can I do if everything I believed is wrong?” or you want to believe you’re right. But you must keep in mind “Beware of false knowledge. It is more dangerous than ignorance.“, George Bernard Shaw said. If you know exactly, the truth shall make you free. (John 8:32) You can feel relieved. In the Christian world now, everyone knew that ‘If people die, immediately they live in heaven or hell forever.’ Have you ever have a question? If so, what should our ancestors who died before the spread of the Christian faith do? It is so unfair. Is it God unfair? Nope. Maybe, I’m wrong.
