Arizona Research Center


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 - mainly relating 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 provide a guiding theoretical framework for our work on Peacebuilding, Nonviolence and the UN Programme for a Culture of Peace.

Theoretical Basis

Measuring Peace as Peacebuilding

The scientific measurement of peacefulness in any given group, community or country provides guidance to organizers and governments on the best course of action to help that group, etc., as well as maximize their resources and realize their potential as a human community for the benefit of all.
