Introduction

UNESCO encourages international peace and universal respect for human rights by promoting collaboration among nations. The organisation has been working towards fostering a culture of peace and non-violence worldwide and is the lead agency for many prominent global initiatives, designated by the UN General Assembly.
Culture of peace is defined as a culture of peace-building, conflict prevention and resolution, education for non-violence, tolerance, acceptance, mutual respect, dialogue and reconciliation. It is closely linked to a ‘new humanism’ that puts human beings at the core of all development processes and helps people to cope with social, ethical, cultural, political, environmental and other societal transformations globally.
