NONVIOLENCE HOME PAGE
Web Technician: _____
In a world of ever more powerful and potentially destructive technology,
that is increasingly interdependent, it is vitally important that we find
nonviolence ways to resolve our conflicts.
See a summary article on the evolution of "Six
Types of Peace" in Western and global peace research, by Paul
Smoker and Linda Groff. Note that each type of peace builds on the previous
types--including these and adding an additional element, until peace finally
becomes a very holistic, multi-level and multi-dimensional entity. Note
that each of these six types of peace has a corresponding type of nonviolence
that goes with it. These six types of peace include:
- Peace as absense of war
- Peace as Balance of Forces (Military, Political, Economic, Social,
Technological, Etc.) in the International System
- Peace as Negative Peace (No Physical Violence or War) and Positive
Peace (No Structural Violence in the International System or in States
on the Macro Level)
- Feminist Peace as No Structural Violence on Macro Levels or Micro Levels
(of the Family or Community)
- Holistic Gaia Peace--adding Peace with the Environment
- Holistic Inner-Outer Peace--adding Inner Peace to all the previous
types of outer peace (above).
