Purpose of Peace Law
For the Future of an International Law
The quintessence of an international law is to support order among societies worldwide and to attain humanity’s fundamental goals: peace, prosperity, human rights, and environmental protection. However, blockages embedded in our daily lives for centuries have held back the effectiveness of an international law, scattering its pure intentions. From big international disputes to conflicts that we experience in our day to day lives, situations remain unresolved, in these cases, the role of an international law seems weak. Initiated by an international NGO, however, there is a hopeful spark for the future of an international law, one that will draw a new framework for global peace.
Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War, Stepping Forward to a Law for Humanity
HWPL initiated an International Law for Peace and Cessation of War as a solution to bring about peace to humanity and an instrument to dispose of all means that initiate war and armed conflicts. Representing the collective wish of people from all walks of life - HWPL’s initiative to international law for peace is a powerful and ground-breaking tool which will enable worldwide enjoyment of peace. Gaining global support, united in one voice, women and youth are at the forefront of urging for the presentation and implementation of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War through the Advocacy Committee.
Proclamation Ceremony of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War
In March 2016, HWPL aimed at taking a great leap forward for peace by publicly presenting the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War at the HWPL’s Proclamation Ceremony which was attended by Government representatives of legal affairs, HWPL International Law Peace Committee, HWPL Advisory Council Members & Publicity Ambassadors, and IPYG & IWPG members. The proclamation ceremony served as a platform to not only proclaim the Declaration to the public for the first time but also initiate the development process of the Declaration into an enforceable International Law, thus reaffirming our solidarity in bringing forth a world without wars.
