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.
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.
