Arizona Research Center

a Nonviolence International New York Project

The Arizona Research Center seeks to bring together a number of peace education and research efforts started in the New York office related mostly to Peacebuilding, Nonviolence and the UN Program for a Culture of Peace.

Theoretical Basis for the AZ Research Program

Johan Galtung’s theories on violence, conflict and peace provides a guiding theoretical framework for our work on Peacebuilding, Nonviolence and the UN Programme for a Culture of Peace.


Measuring Peace as Peacebuilding

Scientific measurement of peacefulness in a given group, community or country provides guidance to organizers and government what best to do to help that group, etc., maximize their resources and realize their potential as a human community, for the benefit of all.
